Town of Târgu-Mureș - Jewish Status Quo:marriages 1886-1946
This register contains marriages for the Status Quo Jewish community in Târgu Mureș and, partway through, a handful from villages in the surrounding countryside (1886-1889). Please note that until 2015, the book was miscatalogued as belonging to the Neologue community. The book is primarily recorded in Hungarian, though frequently the Hebrew names are also provided. Please also note that some marriages were recorded after the event, so that the first marriages recorded in fact date to 1869, not 1886 when the book was first opened. Information recorded is name and birth date and place for the bride and groom, parental information, place and date of the wedding and information regarding the witnesses and officiant. Many of the individuals in this book had their names Magyarized and this is also recorded in the "comments" column. The last entry in the book prior to the deportations is for April 1944. There is one wedding recorded after World War II, in 1947 Please note the book is catalogued as including dates only until 1946.
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.
