This book records deaths that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1887 to 1901, primarily from the Jewish community in the neighborhood of Josefstadt/Josefvaros (today Iosefin). Please note the book is erroneously catalogued as belonging to the citadel (cetate) community, but it is clear from the seal in the book that it was maintained by the Iosefin community. Nevertheless, not all the deceased lived in this quarter. 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. Not all entries are complete. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian. Occasionally Hebrew names or date of death are also provided.
