This item is a birth register for the Jewish community of Ocna Mureș or Marosujvár/Maros Ujvár, as it was known in Hungarian at the time of recording. It includes a group of booklets, by year, recording births in and around Ocna Mures. The book is in fact two registers combined into one at a later point in time. The first register dates 1853-1884 and both printed titles and handwritten entries are in German. The second register dates 1880-1895 and both printed titles and handwritten entries are in Hungarian. Entries are not always entered chronologically and the births are not just from Ocna Mureș but also from the surrounding villages. The entries are fairly complete and include name; date; gender; parents; marital status of parents; parent residence; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents. There are some notes in Romanian recorded later (name changes, relinquishment of citizenship, etc) and Hebrew dates are provided occassionally depending on the scribe.
