Town of Târgu-Mureș - Jewish Status Quo: deaths 1886-1944
This register contains deaths for the Status Quo Jewish community in Târgu Mureș. Please note that until 2015, the book was miscatalogued as belonging to the Neologue community. The book is primarily recorded in Hungarian, though the names of the deceased are recorded in Hebrew and with the names of the individual's parents (in Hebrew). Information recorded is name, birth place, age, circumstances of death, date of death (including Hebrew date), place of burial, and surviving relatives.
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.
