Sibiu Jewish community: register of births; 1886-1924, 1938
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. Many pages, especially the first several from 1886-1887, are in poor condition and are in many cases missing sections. The register is fairly continuous until about 1902, and thereafter there are scattered entries until 1924. Between the back page and the cover are inserted two death certificates from 1938 with accompanying requests to annotate the birth register. Although the majority of entries are for births in Sibiu, a considerable number of births in Sebeș is also recorded, as well as some births in smaller localities near Sibiu.
