This register is entirely in Hungarian, with a few names written in Hebrew by certain scribes. Though the book is catalogued under Reghin and was certainly maintained there, most of the individuals appear to be from neighboring villages. Thus, even half a century after the laws were changed to allow Jews to live in towns, perhaps half or even a majority of the Jewish births were occurring in rural villages.
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.
