The headings in this book are in German, entries are generally also made in German, but the "comments" or "death" notes are sometimes in Hungarian or Romanian (added decades after original entry). 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. Sometimes date and circumstances of death are also included. The register is for the Orthodox Jewish Community. Interestingly, about one third of the births are to village families, appearing to indicate that the village Jews were more inclined to Orthodoxy than their urban coreligionists. At the end of the book are several loose sheets including death certificates and a certificate of conversion (to Roman Catholicism) made in 1944 in Oradea (northern Translyvania). The register itself contains entries until 1885; the loose sheets are from the 1940s.
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.
