This book records births that took place within families in and around the town of Făget from 1878-1940. Entries were generally completed meticulously, though sometimes messily, and 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. Sometimes birthplace of parents and maiden name of mother is also provided. Some scribes recorded the Hebrew names of both child and parents. The book is printed in German and Hungarian; the initial entries are in German and later ones in Hungarian. Addenda recorded after 1945, generally regarding release of birth citizenship and/or relinquishment of citizenship, are in Romanian. Please note that at the time of the survey (2016) entries later than 1915 were inaccessible to researchers, unless proof of relation is provided.
