Town of Târgu Mureș, Jewish (Orthodox and Status Quo): births, marriages, deaths-1885-1895
This register contains birth, marriages, and deaths from the town of Târgu Mureș for both the Orthodox and the Status Quo communities for the years 1885-1895. 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. From the entries in this book it is clear that the Status Quo community was the much larger and more powerful community in the city at this time period.
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.
