This register contains records of births for the Orthodox community in Târgu Mureș. Please note that the dates included are sporadic. There are consistent entries from 1879-1885, after which there is a gap of 10 years. Please see the register with reference number: Dublete, 292 in the Stare civila collection for births during this period. During the interwar period there are only a handful of births recorded. It appears there must have been another manner of recording births within the community or with the authorities. The book has printed titles in Hungarian and German and entries begin in German but later switch to Hungarian and, during the interwar period, include names in Hebrew and/or Yiddish. Information recorded is standard including name, place, date of birth and information on the occupation and birthplace of the parents.
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.
