Israelite community, district of Timișoara: deaths (1886-1935)
This book records deaths that took place in the district and town of Timișoara from 1886-1935. Please note most of the deaths do not take place in the town of Timișoara itself. The book appears to have been used regularly until 1894, after which entries are sporadic and not in chronological order. They also begin to include more deaths in the town of Timișoara whereas before the entries were generally from the surrounding region or the urban district of Mehala, incorporated in 1910 into Timișoara but considered a separate locality at the time of record. If fully completed, entries record the name, birth place, occupation (sometimes), gender, residence, and marital status of the deceased; date, place, and cause of death; immediate surviving relatives; and place and date of burial. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian until the interwar period, thereafter sometimes in Romanian. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers.
