Târgu-Mureș, district of Sângeorgiu de Pădure-Jewish Orthodox: deaths
This register is kept entirely in Hungarian. Information recorded is: Name and birthplace of the deceased, date of death, occupation (generally not completed), gender, marriage status, age, place of burial, illness and manner of death. The majority of the individuals listed were from Sângeorgiu de Pădure but there were also some from the surrounding villages. This register book appears to have been maintained, or at least reviewed, by the community in Târgu Mureș.
These registers were maintained by the respective Jewish community and/or local municipality and collected in the 1950s by the National Archives. There are no details provided for the individual registers; presumably the rural registers were collected and stored by the Jewish community of Târgu Mureș sometime around the turn of the century and then these were subsequently transferred in mass to the National Archives. This would explain why they are catalogued under Târgu Mureș rather than the name of the respective village or town.
