Israelite community, district of Buziaș: births (1887-1903)
Buziás és Kerűlete izr. Szúletési anyakönyv
This book records births that took place in and around the town of Buziaș from 1887-1903. Entries were generally completed meticulously and record the names of the child and parents; the birth date and place; gender; whether the birth was legitimate; parents' birth place; information on circumcisions; midwives; and names of witnesses (to the circumcision or name-giving) or godparents. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian; the Hebrew name of the child is normally recorded and sometimes the parents' Hebrew names are also given. There are occasional notes in German and Romanian (made subsequently). There are also records of conversions to Judaism. Please note there is a handwritten remark that births for the year 1886 in the district can be found in the Timisoara book.
