Israelite community, Timișoara-Iosefin quarter: alphabetic index of births [sic?] (1847-1895)
This book is an alphabetic index of marriages or births in Jewish families taking place in the town of Timișoara from 1845 to 1895. Please note the book is catalogued as a register of marriages, but there is no indication that the dates recorded are in fact dates of weddings; such books were much more common for recording birth dates. Only the year (of birth?), the name of the individual and a page number, apparently referring to the original birth book, are recorded. Unfortunately, within the archives of Timisoara, there is no birth or marriage record book beginning in 1845, so it is not clear to what original book was referred. In addition, though this book is catalogued as belonging to the Iosefin/Josefstadt/Józsefváros quarter, there is no indication within the book regarding to what community the book belonged (citadel/cetate, Iosefin, Fabric). A few notes are in Hungarian but for the most part the text consists exclusively of names.
