This register was maintained by the Valea Lungă Jewish community (Hung: Hosszúaszó; German: Langenthal) and records marriages taking place in the region. Please note it is miscatalogued as from the Blaj community, but the contents make clear the book was maintained in Valea Lungă. It was probably taken to Blaj sometime in the first half of the 20th century or possibly as late as World War II. It also appears to be a fragment and the entries do not comprehensively covered the years included. The book, both titles and entries is in German. Most of the weddings recorded took place in Valea Lungă but other neighboring villages are also mentioned such as Jidvei (Zsidve), Tătârlaua (Tatárlaka), Biia (Magyarbénye), Sânmiclăuş (Betlenszentmiklós), Pănade (Panád), Valea Sasului (Szászvölgy), Sâncel (Szancsal) and Micăsasa (Mikeszásza) and others. Generally the bride was from Valea Lungă and the groom from elsewhere, though most of the time both parties were from the vicinity. The entries are fairly complete and include name and birth information for the bride and groom; parent names and occupation; age; where announcement of engagement took place; place and date of the ceremony; and names of witnesses and officiant.
Collection entitled Office of Israelite Matriculation for the district of Valea Lungă (Oficiul Matricular Israelit Cercual din Valea Lungă) and other records catalogued under Blaj, but actually from Valea Lungă.
These registers were maintained by the respective Jewish community and/or local municipality and collected in the 1950s by the National Archives.
