Israelite community, district of Timișoara: births (1886-1950)
This book records births that took place in the district and town of Timișoara from 1886-1950. A noticeable number of births take place in Mehala, a settlement outside the city walls of Timișoara at the time of record. The district was incorporated into the city in 1910. Entries record the names of the child and parents and parents' birth place; the birth date and place of the child; 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 and recorded in Hungarian until around the interwar period when entries begin to be made in Romanian. The Hebrew name of the child is often given. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers.
