County of Mureș-Turda, Jewish: births, marriages, deaths-1886


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), Mureș (Maros), Mureș de Jos (Marosi Alsó), Sângeorgiu de Pădure (Erdőszt Győrgy). 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. There are also letters from local authorities reporting that their were no Jewish births, etc, in their area.

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.
