Aiud (Hung: Nagyenyed): Israelite community; deaths 1857-1885


This item is a compilation of two death register fragments. In one, entries begin in 1857 and run until 1877; the other consists of only one page of incomplete entries from 1885. Most of the deaths recorded took place in Aiud, the rest were in nearby villages. The headings are in German and Hungarian; the entries are in Hungarian. For the most part, the entries are comprehensively completed, though information for surviving relatives (parents or spouse) of the deceased and cause of death is frequently left blank. Otherwise, name and birth information of the deceased; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place, date, and officiant of the burial ceremony are recorded. Please note this register was titled by the National Archives "Israelite-Orthodox Head Rabbinate" (Primrabinatul israelit ortodox) but since this title does not appear anywhere in the book and is misleading, LBI archivists chose to use the customary title for such registers in this catalogue.
