Târgu-Mureș, district of Teaca and Urmeniș-Jewish Orthodox: births
This record book is in a fragile state, many pages have severely frayed edges. The book records the customary information for births including name, date, parental information (names, occupation, birthplace), circumcision or naming ceremony officiant and date, and (sometimes) notes regarding the individual's death or other comments. Of note is the large time span the book covers, from 1858-1922 (the dates prior to the 1886 were entered after the fact). There are many gaps in this period, especially from 1903-1922. Please note that today the villages of Teaca and Urmeniș are not in the county of Mureș, but rather in Bistrița-Nasăud. The entries in this book are for familes living in villages throughout the region around Teaca and Urmeniș.
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.
