The data includes: 1. The register page & register row number; 2. The birth
dates; 3. The Newborns surname and given names; 4. The sex of the Newborn,
5. One child birth or twins, 6. The surnames and given names of the fathers
and the mothers, 7. The birth dates and places of the mothers' 8. The
midwives' full names and the mohalim (circumciser)full names.

1440 newborns for the years 1832-1938. A total of nearly 4,750 persons!

in the Ottoman Empire territories, but especially in Serbia, Bulgaria and

A part of the Community members were of Ashkenazim..
