Title:

Collection of civil records (Suceava county)

Description:

This is a collection of records of birth, marriage, and death, usually in the form of register books kept by religious officials. The collection is arranged alphabetically by the name of the locality, and then if applicable subdivided into subparts by religious denomination. Depending on the time period and on the size of the congregation, birth, marriage, and death registers may consist of separate volumes or be contained in a single volume. Please note that this collection consists of register books for localities within the boundaries of Suceava county, established after the second World War. Suceava County (Județ) includes all of Southern Bukovina (i.e. the part of Austrian Bukovina now within Romania's boundaries), as well as some additional territories which were never part of the Austrian province of Bukovina. For details on the Jewish community record books contained within this collection, please see the links below.
