This book records births that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1886 to 1942. Please note that though this book is catalogued as the "citadel" (cetate) quarter book, many of the families recorded here lived in other neighborhoods. Also note that around the interwar period, entries become more sporadic and are often not in chronologic order. 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. Especially the later entries tend to be incomplete. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian; addenda and entries from the interwar period are sometimes in Romanian. Please note that at the time of survey (2016) any entries past 1915 were closed to researchers.
