Mediaș Jewish community: register of births; 1857-1885
This register is arranged in approximate chronological order listing name of child, date of birth, names and residence of parents, name of midwife and rabbi performing circumcision, name of godparent or witness, and date of circumcision or naming. Notably, the register was designed specifically for a Jewish context and contains columns specifically for circumcision and for a listing of the birthdate in the Hebrew calendar. Later notes and amendments in Romanian are inserted. Although the majority of the entries record births in Mediaș, there are also entries for nearby villages like Alma, Șmig, and Dârlos, as well as a few for larger municipalities like Sighișoara.
