County of Mureș-Turda, Jewish: births, marriages, deaths-1885
This register contains birth, marriages, and deaths from throughout the county (at the time) of Mureș-Turda (Maros-Torda). It is, however, not comprehensive. It contains records from the following districts: Reghin (Szászrégen), Vălenii de Mureș (Disznajó), Deda (Déda), Gurghiu (Görgény), Mureș (Maros), Maros Szentkirály, Sângeorgiu de Pădure (Erdőszt Győrgy), Șilea (today Șilea Nirajului, Hungarian Selye or Nyárádselye) and Iobăgeni (today renamed Valea, next to Vărgata, Hungarian Jobbágyfalva). It is not clear why other districts are not included. Information recorded is standard for these registers: details on parents, birthdates and places, occupation, death circumstances and date, and information regarding the officiants at circumcisions, weddings, and burials.
Other civil records from Târgu Mureș and the surrounding villages
Apparently, these series of registers ("dublete" in Romanian) were created at the behest of the imperial authorities who wanted additional records of births, marriages, and deaths, throughout the region. It appears, however, that the orders to report these events were not always carried out comprehensively or perhaps some of the reports were lost over time.
