Dej (Hung: Dés, Deés), Israelites: births 1894-1895


This register is the continuation of the birth book with call number 92/61. It is not clear how or by whom the register was split: the previous book ends with page 130 and this one begins with page 131 (that sheet of records is split into two books). The book records births in the Jewish community of Dej and in many of the surrounding villages. Frequently mentioned villages are Ocna Dejului (Hung: Déésakna), Chiuieşti (Hung: Pecsétszeg), Mănăstirea (Hung: Szentbenedek, Buneşti (Hung: Széplak), Urișor (Hung: Alör), Câțcău (Hung: Kackó, Katzko), Reteag (Hung: Retteg), Sălișca (Hung: Szeluske), but there are many others. Both headings and entries are in Hungarian. The register was kept relatively well with all data clearly completed in most instances. Name; date and place of birth; gender; parent names, birthplace, and occupation; midwife name; circumcision or naming ceremony officiant is recorded. Several entries have later additions or comments made in Romanian.
