This register records deaths from the Jewish community in Brasov. The contents contains first and last name of deceased, date of death, birth place, occupation (not always completed), sex, marital status, age, place of death with address (not always completed), place of burial, cause of death, additional comments (rarely completed). There are several deaths of people born in Bodola in the 18th century, including one woman, Catharina Fischmann, who died at age 94, and was born in Bodola. She is listed as the widow of a Brandtweinbrenner. Bodola was home to a family of the Hungarian nobility; it seems that there was a small Jewish community (just several families, most likely) there perhaps by the mid 18th century, several generations before Brasov's community was founded.
The civil register books were normally maintained by the respective parish authorities of each town or village. At some point in time in the post-World War II period these records were collected by the National Archives.
