This register records deaths in Jewish families in villages around Cluj and in Cluj itself. In particular the entries from 1887-1888 are for deaths outside of Cluj and thereafter, for the most part, for deaths within Cluj. It is not entirely clear where the book was stored, though it eventually ended up with the Cluj Orthodox community. The headings and entries are in Hungarian. Note that the entries were not always comprehensively completed. Name and birth information of the deceased; residence; occupation; age; date, place, and circumstances of death; place and date of the burial; and names of surviving family members, if applicable, and officiant should be recorded.
