Cluj (Hung: Kolozsvár), Israelites: marriages 1875-1885; 1921-1922 (Orthodox)


This register records marriages for the Orthodox Jewish community of Cluj. The headings are in Hungarian and German and the entries are mixed, in both German and Hungarian, perhaps depending on the scribe. The register was kept quite thoroughly with all data completed clearly in most instances, even down to the street address where the wedding took place. Name and age of bride and groom; parent names, occupation, residence; wedding announcement information; date and place of the wedding; witnesses and officiant name are all provided. The bulk of the entries are from 1875-1885 and then several pages from the 1920s are appended. Please note these later entries could not be viewed at the time of the present survey (2016) due to archival regulations.
