Probate Question

Probate Question

Hi - I have a general question about Danish probate records. If someone lived in one county or parish, but died while they were in another one, which county or parish would likely have that person's probate record listed?

I'm asking because my 4th great grandfather lived in Odense county, but died while visiting his son in Svendborg county.

Thanks!

I think the probate would be filed in his home parish.

Sincerely,
Paul
