Cluj (Hung: Kolozsvár), Israelites: births, marriages, deaths 1852-1875


This register records births, marriages, and deaths for the Jewish community of the Cluj. The register is a compilation of at least nine originally separate books - three each for births, marriages, and deaths. It seems they were bound together in 1890. The first book in each section is in handwritten German (headings as well); the next two have headings printed in Hungarian and German and entries in German or Hungarian with subsequent notes and comments in Hungarian. There are also several pages of outside correspondence attached throughout the book, normally from various municipal or state authorities requesting or confirming civil record data or regarding name changes. There is one piece of correspondence about a conversion in 1943.
