Ocna Mureș (Hung: Marosujvár): Jewish community; births 1849-1895, deaths 1871-1894, marriages 1868-1895


This register contains entries for births, deaths, and marriages recorded in a variety of manners. It seems that the book is a compilation of several documents which were at one time separately maintained. The first nine pages contain birth records, sometimes organized by family, sometimes chronologically, with several pages blank or with only one entry; many entries lack complete data. The earliest birth recorded is 1849 though this and other births from the 1850s and 1860s were almost definitely recorded several decades later. The last birth recorded is from 1895. There is one page of deaths listing five entries from 1871-1894; the entries generally lack complete data. Then follows a page of wedding records, but written across a birth-records rubrik. These weddings took place in 1892. Then follows two pages of text in Hungarian recording divorce proceedings held before a rabbinical court. Such records of community life and relations are extremely rare. Finally there is one sheet, recorded front and back, of marriages dating 1868-1895. The book is in Hungarian with German and Hungarian printed titles. Most events took place in Ocna Mureș (Marosujvár/Maros Ujvár) or nearby villages.
