This item consists of register booklets arranged by year and then by topic – births, marriages, and deaths. Births list name of child, often with their Hebrew name as well, date of birth, sex, names and birthplaces of parents, as well as the father's profession. Additional entries appear to list date of circumcision or of naming, as well as midwife and godfather. There are columns for date of death and additional remarks. In the marriage registers names and addresses of the bride and groom are given, along with names and residence of their parents, often including the father's profession and the mother's maiden name. Location of wedding is also provided, along with the name of the officiating rabbi. The death registers list name and birthplace of the deceased, date, cause, and location of death, and names and residence of parents, often with mother's maiden name. Notably, these registers record births, marriages, and deaths not just in Mediaș but also in nearby smaller localities.
