This register records births for Jews living in the villages south of the town of Gherla (Hung: Szamosújvár) and, less frequently, in the town of Gherla itself. Both headings and entries are in German, though some notes in Hungarian were added at later points in time. The register was kept relatively well with all data completed in most instances. Name, date, gender, parents, marital status of parents, parent residence, midwife name, circumcision or naming ceremony details and name of witnesses or godparents are provided. Entries were made chronologically at some points and by family at other points. Villages that appear with some frequency are Iclod (Hu: Nagyiklód), Răscruci (Hu: Válaszút), Silivaș (Hu: Szilvás), Sic (Hu: Szék), Bonțida (Hu: Bonchida).
