This register records deaths for the Neologue Jewish community of Cluj. The headings and entries are in Hungarian, sometimes the Hebrew name is included. Note that the entries were not always comprehensively completed: Name and birth information of the deceased; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place and date of the burial; and names of surviving family members, if applicable, and officiant should be recorded. Please note that at the time of the present survey (2016), deaths taking place later than 1914 were not legally accessible. Presumably entries after 1918 are in Romanian or partially in Romanian.

Please note that at the time of the present survey (2016), marriages taking place later than 1914 were not legally accessible. Presumably entries after 1918 are in Romanian or partially in Romanian.

This collection comprises civil registers recording births, marriages, and deaths. Originally the registers were kept by each respective parish, church, synagogue, etc. In the 1950s they were collected by the National Archives and made into this overarching collection. The collection is organized alphabetically by location, then by religious community. All Jewish registers held at the Cluj archives are described in detail below; please click on a title for more information.

This book records marriages that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1872 to 1886, primarily in the Iosefin/Josefstadt/Józsefváros quarter. Marriages from 1940-1949 are also recorded, though at the time of the survey (2016), researchers were not allowed access to these later entries. Entries record the names, age, marital status (widow, etc), occupation of the bride and groom; their parents' names, residence, and (sometimes) occupation; where and when wedding was announced; and date, place, and officiant of the wedding. The book is printed and recorded in German. Entries from the 1940 are presumably in Romanian; Hebrew names appear to be recorded as well.

This book is an alphabetic index of names found in the birth record book for the district of Timișoara from 1886-1950. The index records only name, year of birth, and page number on which the record may be found. Note that the page number corresponds with the original page number, not the subsequent one given by the National Archives. The index is in Romanian, indicating it was created much later than the original record book to which it refers. Please see also the entry for the original record book, which is catalogued under district of Timișoara, nr. 4 [Plasa centrală Timișoara, nr. 4).

This book records marriages that took place in the district and town of Timișoara from 1886-1950. Please note many of the weddings do not take place in the town of Timișoara itself. Entries record the names, age, marital status (widow, etc), occupation of the bride and groom; their parents' names, residence, and (sometimes) occupation; where and when wedding was announced; and date, place, and officiant of the wedding. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian until the interwar period, thereafter in Romanian. Occasionally Hebrew names are provided. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers.

This book records births that took place in the district and town of Timișoara from 1886-1950. A noticeable number of births take place in Mehala, a settlement outside the city walls of Timișoara at the time of record. The district was incorporated into the city in 1910. Entries record the names of the child and parents and parents' birth place; the birth date and place of the child; gender; whether the birth was legitimate; information on circumcisions; midwives; and names of witnesses (to the circumcision or name-giving) or godparents. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian until around the interwar period when entries begin to be made in Romanian. The Hebrew name of the child is often given. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers.

This book records births that took place in and around the town of Sânnicolaul Mare from 1895-1946. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers. Entries record the names of the child and parents, sometimes including mother's maiden name and parents' birth place; the birth date and place of the child; gender; whether the birth was legitimate; information on circumcisions; midwives; and names of witnesses (to the circumcision or name-giving) or godparents. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian until the interwar period, thereafter in Romanian. The Hebrew names and birth date are often provided. Addenda are in Hungarian and Romanian; these generally relate to name changes, conversions, the death or marriage of the individual. There are at least two conversions of individuals born earlier than 1895, but who converted in 1896 and are thus included in this book.

This book was begun by the Jewish community of Balinț, according to the title page and stamps from 1886, but it appears that after a relatively short period, within 10 years, it was transferred to the community of Lugoj. Already in 1893 the scribe signing off was based in Lugoj and hereafter most of the entries are for families from Lugoj. The book is primarily in Hungarian (printed and entries) though beginning in the interwar period entries are (sometimes) in Romanian. In the 1920s the Hebrew name of the child begins to be included and by the 1940s the parents' Hebrew names, including "son of" or "daughter of", can often be found. Of interest are the multiple entries for conversions which include the names of the converts, what religion they left, the fulfillment of conversion requirements, and their Hebrew name. These are signed by the rabbi.

This collection comprises civil registers recording births, marriages, and deaths. Originally the registers were kept by each respective parish, church, synagogue, etc. In the 1950s they were collected by the National Archives and made into this overarching collection. The collection is generally organized by religion, with the Jewish community collections at the end of the inventory. In addition to birth, marriage, and death records, some of the registers, primarily birth registers, record conversions to Judaism.
