[Region around] Turda (Hung: Torda), Israelites: births 1835-1894
This register records births for Jews from villages around Turda. Very few births recorded took place in Turda itself. The entries are not made chronologically and thus it is not clear when the book was begun, probably in the 1880s or 1890s. The earliest birth entered took place in 1835 and the latest in 1894. 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. Please also see item under call number 236/17, which is an index, by birth year, for this birth registery. That index, however, begins with births in 1857 and goes only until 1885.
