Sibiu Jewish community: register of births; 1854-1885, 1895-1929, 1938-1944
This birth register is arranged in approximate chronological order. Each entry lists the name of the child, date of birth, name of parents (usually with the maiden name of the mother), address of parents, date of circumcision or naming, name of mohel and of witnesses or godparents. Occasionally a Hebrew name is also listed for the child. Although the majority of entries are for Sibiu, births are also in isolated cases recorded for other localities, such as: Alțâna, Sebeș, Nocrich, Mediaș, Cisnădie, Chirpăr. Several additional items are inserted into the register, including requests for amendments to the register. Notably, a substantial number of notifications about the conversions of individuals from Judaism to various Christian denominations during the late 1930s are also interleaved. It is also notable that most of the individuals listed on these conversion notifications were born in the early 20th century, therefore after the period during which this birth register was kept. Along with these conversion notifications is also interleaved a handwritten register of births since 1895, which provides the name of the child and the name of the parents in Hebrew, occasionally with additional information in Hebrew. Although this specific register is undated, handwritten date annotations seem to indicate it was created sometime after 1929.
