This item consists of several loose sheets recording births, marriages and deaths in various villages and small towns around Alba Iulia. The pages originate from three different sources: some are from the Jewish community of Aiud; one is from the Jewish community of Teius; and the rest are from the recordkeeper for the subdistrict of Kisenyed, Philipp Gerst. These pages record births and marriages in various villages in that subdistrict (please see related register, also maintained by P. Gerst, under ref. number 2750). All documents date 1885-1886 and are in Hungarian. Documents from the two larger communities record more details about the births (parental information, etc) while the sheets from Gerst are succinct with name, date, place.

This item includes birth, marriage, and death records for the Jewish community of Aiud. Please note that the book was started in 1886 and any births occurring earlier were recorded after the fact and there are very few of these. The headings and entries are in Hungarian; some later entries are in Hungarian. Around the turn of the century many of the entries include significant Hebrew and, unusually, a few are entirely in Hebrew. For the most part, the entries are comprehensively completed. For births, name; date; gender; parents; marital status of parents; parent residence; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents are provided. For marriages, name and birth information for the bride and groom; parent names and occupation; age; where announcement of engagement took place; place and date of the ceremony; and names of witnesses and officiant is recorded. For deaths, name and birth information of the deceased; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place, date, and officiant of the burial ceremony; names of surviving relatives is recorded.

This item is a compilation of two death register fragments. In one, entries begin in 1857 and run until 1877; the other consists of only one page of incomplete entries from 1885. Most of the deaths recorded took place in Aiud, the rest were in nearby villages. The headings are in German and Hungarian; the entries are in Hungarian. For the most part, the entries are comprehensively completed, though information for surviving relatives (parents or spouse) of the deceased and cause of death is frequently left blank. Otherwise, name and birth information of the deceased; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place, date, and officiant of the burial ceremony are recorded. Please note this register was titled by the National Archives "Israelite-Orthodox Head Rabbinate" (Primrabinatul israelit ortodox) but since this title does not appear anywhere in the book and is misleading, LBI archivists chose to use the customary title for such registers in this catalogue.

This item is a compilation of two marriage register fragments. Entries begin in 1858 and run until 1879, though one fragment consists of only one page which is not dated. Most of the weddings recorded took place in Aiud, the rest were in nearby villages. The headings are in German and Hungarian; the entries are generally in Hungarian with some remarks in Romanian from the interwar period. The entries are not always comprehensively completed; data which should be recorded is name and birth information for the bride and groom; parent names and occupation; age; where announcement of engagement took place; place and date of the ceremony; and names of witnesses and officiant. Please note this register was titled by the National Archives "Israelite-Orthodox Head Rabbinate" (Primrabinatul israelit ortodox) but since this title does not appear anywhere in the book and is misleading, LBI archivists chose to use the customary title for such registers in this catalogue.

This item is a compilation of several birth registers spanning a wide range of years which also include entries made after the fact. The registers were probably kept from about the 1850s-1890s and births earlier than 1850 were recorded at later points în time. Please note that while some registers recorded births in the Aiud community, there is one section that records births in villages and towns around Aiud. Mentioned particularly often are Teiuş (Hungarian: Tövis); Benic (Hung: Benedek); Stremţ (Diód); Sântimbru (Szentimre); Cricău (Krakkó). The headings are in German and Hungarian; the entries are generally in Hungarian with scattered German entries as well. A few scribes included the Hebrew name. Information is comprehensively completed for the most part, though some scribes were less meticulous and there are also several missing pages. Name; date; gender; parents; marital status of parents; parent residence; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents are provided.

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 by locality and then religion. In addition to birth, marriage, and death records, some of the Christian registers record conversions, baptisms, confirmations, pastor or priest names, and other notes on the development of the community. The Romanian preface to a similar collection in the Mureș county archives notes that in 1784 the Jewish communities were made to record their civil records under the supervision of the Catholic priests. It is unclear whether this may indicate that 18th century Jewish records could be found within Catholic record books. In any case, there are no extant Jewish registers dating prior to the 1820s in the district of Alba in this collection, though births taking place as early as the early 1800s were recorded after the fact in some registers. All Jewish registers held at the Alba archives are described in detail below; please click on a title for more information.
