This register records births, marriages, and deaths for Jews in villages near the town of Dej and in Dej itself. The most frequently mentioned villages are Răzbuneni (Hung: Szinye), Tăuți (Hung: Tothfalu, Tótfalu), Nima (Hung: Néma), Batin (Hung: Báton), Cremenea (Hung: Keménye), Băbdiu (Hung: Zápróc, Zaprotz), Ocna Dejului (Hung: Déésakna), Chiuieşti (Hung: Pecsétszeg), Mănăstirea (Hung: Szentbenedek, Buneşti (Hung: Széplak), Cetan (Hung: Csatány, Csatan, Csotten), Ileanda (Hung: Nagy-Illonda), Urișor (Hung: Alör), Câțcău (Hung: Kackó, Katzko), Glod (Hungarian Soósmező), and Sălișca (Hung: Szeluske). Please note the Hungarian names have a variety of spellings and the entries are not at all uniform. Data recorded is typical for record books of this time and includes the individual's name and birth details; parent details; place of residence; for births information on the circumcision; for marriages information on the ceremony; for deaths circumstances of death and details on the burial. This book was maintained by the Dej community at least until the interwar period (stamps in Romanian). Both headings and entries are entirely in German; some entries have notes in Hungarian added at later points in time.
