Aghireșu (Hung: Egeres), Israelites: births, marriages, deaths 1837-1884


This register records births, marriages, and deaths for the Jewish community of the village of Aghireșu, or Egeres in Hungarian, the name it was known by at the time of recording. The births section is a log of families rather than a chronological birth register. All the children born to one family are listed together; the families are numbered. The earliest birth recorded is 1833. The entries were probably made in the 1850s or 1860s as a result of new regulations on the keeping of civil records. In addition to the birth date, place, and gender of the baby, parental information, midwife name, and data on the naming ceremony or bris is provided. Families are from many villages in the area. There are also several different sets of birth entries, perhaps representing sporadic updates to the log. Please note there are a few documents from the interwar period attached to records verifying or contesting legal names. There is one page of marriages entered; no year is provided for the marriages (1870s?) and much of the information is left blank. There is also one page of deaths recorded, taking place in the late 1860s-1880s. The only information recorded is the name of the deceased and place and date of death. Sometimes cause is also noted.
