This register records deaths from the Jewish community of Brasov. The printed register titles are in German and Hungarian, the handwritten entries are in German. Information listed includes date of death, name and occupation of deceased, gender, marital status, age, parents' names, name of marriage partner still living, place (including address) of death, cause of death, place and date of burial. There appears to have been a chicken-pox epidemic during the winter and spring of 1874. This registry ends when the community split into Neologue and Orthodox factions.
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.
