Alba Iulia (Hung: Gyulafehérvár) [Surrounding villages]: Israelite community; births 1886-1933
Please note this item is catalogued as births of the community in Alba Iulia, but in fact almost none of the births took place in Alba Iulia, rather in the villages and small towns surrounding the city. The register was, perhaps, maintained in Alba Iulia, and was supposed to record births in the district. This may also explain why it seems somewhat haphazardly kept. Note that there are many gaps in the entries, they are not consistent from 1886-1933; in particular after the turn of the century entries are far less frequent. The book is primarily in Hungarian with some Hebrew dates and names provided. Entries after World War I are sometimes in Romanian. 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.
