This is the first birth record book that exists for the community. Information recorded includes name of child, names of parents, residence, date of birth, sex, legitimate or illigitimate, midwife name, mohel name and date of circumcision or name-giving (in the case of a girl), names of witnesses or godparents. Both the printed matter and the handwritten entries are in German; entries are for the years 1851-1873. At the end of the book are 32 leaves of handwritten pages, dated 1900. The pages appear to be an index to this birth book as well as a later one (entries continue into the late 1890s, 25 years after the register book ends). These sheets are headed in Hungarian and are alphabetical, recording the name, entry number in the respective birth book, and birth date.
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.
