Dej (Hung: Dés, Deés), Israelites: family registry
This book appears to be a register of families for the Jewish community of Dej. It is not indicated when the book was created but birthdates recorded tend to be from the 1860s-1880s. One family per page is recorded and data includes the names of parents, names of children, birth dates and place. Birth place and dates of the parents is seldom indicated but children data is almost always completed. The book is in Hungarian but names are also written in Hebrew. Unique is the index at the back of the book which includes a Hebrew alphabet index, according to first name of the father (Reb Benjamin, etc) and then a Latin alphabet index, according to the family name (Ausspitz, etc). There are no other indications as to for or by whom the book was created. Some pages include slips of paper with notes in Yiddish.
