Encyclopedias may provide information on all branches of knowledge or treat specific topics comprehensively, usually in alphabetically arranged articles. They often contain information of great interest for genealogical research, including articles about towns and places, prominent people, minorities, and religions. They can give information about diverse subjects, such as record-keeping practices, laws, customs, commerce, costumes, occupations, and archaic terminology.

The Family History Library has general-knowledge encyclopedias from Denmark (in Danish) along with Danish-English and English-Danish dictionaries. The encyclopedias and dictionaries are listed in the FamilySearch Catalog under DENMARK - ENCYCLOPEDIAS AND DICTIONARIES.
