This book records births that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1862 to 1885. Please note that though this book is catalogued as the "citadel" (cetate) community book, the births took place for the most part in other neighborhoods, primarily Fabrik and Josefstadt (today Fabric and Iosefin). Entries record the names of the child and parents, often including mother's maiden name; 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. Some scribes recorded the Hebrew name. The book is printed and recorded in German until around the mid-1870s after which it is primarily in Hungarian. Addenda are in Hungarian and German.
