Collection of Cadastral Records
The Collection of Cadastral Records includes seven different inventories. The collection is vast and access to documents is frequently denied on the grounds that the contents contain property information. Nevertheless, there are folders pertaining to a number of villages and towns with significant Jewish populations and, in certain cases, data can be gathered from the documents as to the location of the synagogue or other Jewish spaces. In general the documents include such items as lists of house-owners or property owners, as well as agricultural surveys of the land. There are folders for the following villages and towns which had demonstrable Jewish populations: Acățari, Adămuș, Nazna, Agrișteu, Cetatea de Baltă, Mediaș, Dumbrăveni, Ernei, Miercurea Nirajului, Ormeniș, Reghin, Sighișoara, Sâncraiul de Mureș, Sovata, Teaca, Târgu Mureș, Toplița, Ungheni, Valea (Iobageni), Luduș. Please note that the collection contains folders for many villages and towns outside of the current Mureș county borders, in particular there are countless folders for Saxon villages to the south, today in the county of Sibiu or even Brașov. Please note that inventory 691 was missing in 2015.
Various governmental authorities
German, Hungarian, Romanian
The documents were created by various municipalities, government surveyors, or other governmental representatives over the past 150-200 years. According to the staff at the Mureș National Archives branch, at some point in time the material was collected by a central organisation (responsible for more than just the county of Mureș), which, in turn, later turned the documents over to the National Archives.
The Romanian National Archives have strict rules regarding the access of any documents containing property information. Some branches will deny researchers access to cadastral collections all together. Others may allow select usage if proof can be given that the research is for "scientific" purposes and not for private reasons.
