Târgu Mureș, districts of Mureșul de Jos, Mureșul de Sus, Miercurea Nirajului-Jewish: births, marriages, deaths 1886-1889
This register is kept in Hungarian. The contents record individuals from the districts or counties surrounding Târgu Mureș during the late 19th century. It is unclear why or how this register book came to be maintained, as all the towns and villages noted can be found in other register books specifically for their region. The contents of the book are mixed up - that is, pages of marriage records interrupt death records, and so forth. If using this register for research, it is important to look through all the pages since they are not clearly divided between births, marriages, and deaths. Please see also the other civil records held at the National Archives in Mureș county for additional records from the towns and villages listed in this book.
Other civil records from Târgu Mureș and the surrounding 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.
