Aiud (Hung: Nagyenyed): Israelite community; births 1829-1895


This item is a compilation of several birth registers spanning a wide range of years which also include entries made after the fact. The registers were probably kept from about the 1850s-1890s and births earlier than 1850 were recorded at later points în time. Please note that while some registers recorded births in the Aiud community, there is one section that records births in villages and towns around Aiud. Mentioned particularly often are Teiuş (Hungarian: Tövis); Benic (Hung: Benedek); Stremţ (Diód); Sântimbru (Szentimre); Cricău (Krakkó). The headings are in German and Hungarian; the entries are generally in Hungarian with scattered German entries as well. A few scribes included the Hebrew name. Information is comprehensively completed for the most part, though some scribes were less meticulous and there are also several missing pages. Name; date; gender; parents; marital status of parents; parent residence; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents are provided.
