Apahida (Hung: Apahida), Israelites: births 1883-1887


This register records births for the Jewish community of the village of Apahida (same name in Romanian and Hungarian). 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. Births primarily take place in Apahida, but there are also some entries from surrounding villages. The register is very short, containing essentially only one page of entries, and may represent a fragment of the original. The register is in Hungarian and unlike most Jewish registers, which were created specifically for Jewish communities, this appears to have been created for a Christian community ("christening" vocabulary is used).
