This register records births and deaths for Jews in villages near the town of Dej and in Dej itself. The most frequently mentioned villages are Urișor (Hung: Alör), Răzbuneni (Hung: Szinye), Cuzdrioara (Hung: Kozárvár), Reteag (Hung: Retteg). Please note the Hungarian names have a variety of spellings. Data recorded is typical for record books of this time and includes the individual's name and birth details; parent details; place of residence; for births information on the circumcision; for deaths circumstances of death and details on the burial. Headings are in German and Hungarian; entries are entirely in Hungarian. Entries are often incomplete and the scribe sometimes created his own headings, different from the printed ones. The entries are not chronological and it is not clear when the book was started, probably in the 1880s. The comments added to the birth entries all date from this time and the first deaths entered are from 1886 (no year is provided for later deaths but they are probably also from 1886). Please note the register is catalogued by the National Archives as having deaths from 1845-1880, but this is an error. This book was maintained by the Dej community at least until the interwar period (stamps in Romanian).

This register records births, marriages, and deaths for the Jews of several communities near the town of Dej, including Ocna Dejului (Hung: Déésakna); Câțcău (Hung: Kackó); Maia (Hung: Mánya); Mănăstirea (Hung: Szentbenedek); Reteag (Hung: Retteg) and other villages near the above settlements. The book is arranged by locality and it seems likely that the contents originally formed five separate books and the pages were combined into one book at a later point in time. Each section begins with births, then moves to marriages and then deaths. The headings are in German and Hungarian and the pages are specific to the needs of a Jewish community (spaces for circumcision information, includes Hebrew letters for dates). The handwritten entries are generally in a mix of Hungarian and German; the German, though written with Latin characters, has noticeable Yiddish traits. Data recorded is typical for record books of this time and includes the individual's name and birth details, parent details, place of residence, for births information on the circumcision, for marriages information on the ceremony, for deaths circumstances of death and details on the burial. This book was maintained by the Dej community at least until the interwar period (stamps in Romanian).

The Jewish Communities of Romania Collection (sometimes also described by the Romanian National Archives as the Documents Collection of the Jewish Communities of Romania) contains documents created and received by Jewish communities and organizations functioning in Romania from the 19th century to the first half of the 20th century.

The documents until World War II are composed of a variety of items reflecting community life, including statutes, correspondence, reports, and membership lists. Documents from the World War II period generally address the plight of Romanian Jews during this period. This material includes reports on persecutions and expropriations, correspondence and other documents related to deportees, and emigration paperwork. The post-World War II material generally deals with the repatriation of Jewish deportees to the Romanian-organized camps in Transnistria, the welfare of survivors, emigration, and the activities of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Romania and of the Jewish Democratic Committee (communist Jewish organization).
