Valea Lungă (Hung: Hosszúaszó; German: Langenthal): Jewish community; births and deaths 1891


This item seems to be excerpts/duplicates for the year 1891 from the birth, marriage, and death registers for the Jewish community in Valea Lungă. The marriage excerpt records that no marriages took place. Unfortunately the book from which the pages were extracted or duplicated does not appear to be extant or is lost (the running number for entries does not begin with 1). The births and deaths recorded took place in Valea Lungă and many of the neighboring villages (Valea Lungă was the seat of the district) including Jidvei (Zsidve), Tătârlaua (Tatárlaka), Biia (Magyarbénye), Sânmiclăuş (Betlenszentmiklós), Pănade (Panád), Valea Sasului (Szászvölgy), Sâncel (Szancsal) and Micăsasa (Mikeszásza) and others. The entries are fairly complete and include, for deaths, name and birth information of the deceased; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place, date, and officiant of the burial ceremony; names of surviving relatives is recorded. For births, name; date; gender; parents; marital status of parents; parent residence; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents is provided. The records are in Hungarian.
