Urișor (Hung: Alör) and Chiuieşti (Hung: Pecsétszeg), Israelites: births 1874-1885; marriages 1874-1884; deaths 1874-1884


This register contains two sets of birth, marriage, and death records which were bound together into one book at some point in time (the second set was mistakenly inserted before the first set ends). The vast majority of the entries from the first set are for residents of Urișor (Hung: Alör), a few other nearby villages are also mentioned. The second set contains entries almost exclusively from residents of Chiuieşti (Hung: Pecsétszeg), with a few entries for nearby villages. Despite being catalogued under "Dej" there are in fact no births, marriages or deaths recorded in Dej itself. 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. Headings are in German and Hungarian; entries are entirely in German; Hebrew dates are sometimes provided. This book was maintained by the Dej community at least until the interwar period (stamps in Romanian). Please note this register is catalogued under "Dej" but the surveying archivists chose to rename it within the JBAT catalogue to more accurately reflect the contents.
