Târgu-Mureș, district of Sâncraiu de Mureș-Jewish Orthodox: deaths
The titles of this book are in German and the entries are primarily in German as well, except for the last few. 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. It is unclear why this book is in German, when all the other registers from the region are in Hungarian (except for the corresponding marriage register from the same community). 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. Sâncraiu de Mureș and Nazna figure especially prominently.
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.
