I am pleased to announce that the Hungarian research group is going
to acquire and transcribe 19 books of civil records from Dej in Cluj
county Romania, formerly Des, Szolnok Doboka, Hungary. The birth,
marriage, and death records cover the time period from October 1895,
when Hungary began civil registration, to 1916-1917 as follows:
Des was the main city in Szolnok-Doboka megye. Jews were prohibited
from living in the city until 1834. After the ban was lifted, the
Jewish population increased from about three in 1838 to 122 in 1857.
Immigrants from Galicia comprised the majority of the Jewish community.
By 1877, there were 560 Jewish residents. Menachem Mendel Paneth, son
of Yehezkel Paneth, the chief rabbi of Transylvania, became the first
rabbi in 1862. The first synagogue was founded in 1864, and a new one
was built in 1909 when the old synagogue was given to the town's 250
