This book records births that took place in and around the town of Ciacova from 1857-1885. Note that by and large, the entries repeat those entered in the births book for this district beginning in 1785 (see related material). Entries record the names of the child and parents; the birth date and place; gender; whether the birth was legitimate; information on circumcisions; midwives; and names of witnesses (to the circumcision or name-giving) or godparents. The book is printed in German and entries are in German and Hungarian.
