1895 is the opposite end: the record-preservation contracts with the Mormons were for the pre-civil-registration vital registers. The law requiring archive copies of registers was enacted in the mid-1820s, but due to various factors, many Jewish congregations didn't start complying with vital records laws until after the 1848 revolution. I keep hearing mention of Jews in Roman Catholic registers before that time, but I have yet to ever encounter an actual example of this. (The closest I've gotten is my godmother's tree, which includes a bunch of events that were completely misfiled on FS: Jewish records from a place in southern Hungary were labeled as Catholic records from northern Hungary, because they were on the same microfilm.)
