Town of Târgu-Mureș - Jewish Status Quo: births 1864-1885; marriages 1880-1885; deaths 1877-1885
This register contains records of births, marriages, and deaths for, presumably, the Status Quo Jewish community in Târgu Mureș. Please note that the book is currently (2015) miscatalogued as belonging to the Neologue community. The book is primarily recorded in Hungarian, with some Hebrew names and dates and occasionally some German. The information recorded for births, marriages, and deaths is typical for these books and includes birthdate and place, parent names and background, place of residence, occupation, bride and groom birthdates and place, officiant name for circumcisions, weddings, and funerals, death date and place, circumstances or cause of death, place of burial, and so forth. Please note that there are several register books with overlapping dates for the Târgu Mureș community; it is not clear why this is, though it may be related to the confusion in the wake of the schism.
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.
