This register contains handwritten German entries with printed German titles. It includes entries for Ițcani (Itzcany), Burdujeni, and some other localities in the region. It lists names of child and parents, including in many cases mother's maiden name and name, residence, and profession of her parents, father's profession, address of residence, date of birth, and date of circumcision. Name, profession, and place of residence are also given for witnesses, mohel, and midwife. Amendments and comments, later ones occasionally in Romanian, are listed in the final column. The book is notably tailored for use by the Jewish community, including the aforementioned columns for date of circumcision and name of sandek and mohel. Some amendments and additions in Romanian from later decades also appear.
The civil register books were normally maintained by the respective parish authorities of each town or village. At some point in time in the post-World War II period these records were collected by the National Archives.
