This register book was apparently used by the spa and resort ”Regina Maria” (Queen Maria”) to record guests. The book records the name, birth year, and occupation of the guest, day of arrival, spouse's name and birth year (sometimes), town of residence, identity card information, address where they are staying in Solca, and cost for the spa services. Solca was known for its salt waters and fresh air. The vast majority of the guests in this book are Jews, many from Bessarabia as well as elsewhere in the Regat and of course Bukovina.

This collection contains documents maintained by the Solca town hall during World War I through to the 1950s. Of particular interest is a record book from one of the spa resorts with the names of all visitors, most of whom were Jews from across the entire region of Greater Romania. There are also files regarding the awarding of Romanian citizenship to inhabitants. For details on these items, please see the JBAT entry for this collection, subfield "contains" and click on any title.
