Târgu-Mureș, district of Sâncraiu de Mureș-Jewish Orthodox: births
This register is kept in Hungarian, with printed titles in Hungarian and German. Information recorded is: name of the newborn, gender, whether legitimate or illegitimate, birth date (Hebrew date also requested but not filled out), father and mother names, place of residence of parents, name of the midwife, name of the circumcizer, other notes. The families entered here are from all the villages to the north, east, and west (but not crossing the river) of Sâncraiu de Mureș, which was the administrative center of the district at the time. Today many of these small villages are more or less part of the town of Târgu Mureș.
Other civil records from Sâncraiu de Mureș and 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.
