This book records births that took place in the town of Timișoara from 1887 to 1942, primarily, though not exclusively, in the Iosefin/Josefstadt/Józsefváros quarter. 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. Later entries in particular are often not fully completed. The book is printed and recorded in Hungarian. Addenda are in Romanian.
