Turda (Hung: Torda), Israelites: births 1837-1885


This register records births for Jews living in and around Turda. The first entry in the book is for 1848 though it seems, due to the consistency of the handwriting and the fact that it is in Hungarian, whereas German was generally used in the mid-19th century, that the book may have been created at a much later date. Still, the information was, in general, entered chronologically, with a few exceptions (births from 1837 and later entered in the last pages). The headings and entries are in Hungarian. The register was kept quite thoroughly with all data completed clearly 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.
