Eric, Berlád/Birla, Hungary until 1920, today Bârla, Romania.
Berlad had Gr.Cath. and Eastern Orthodox churches, other religions went church to other towns, R.Cath. and Jewish to Beszterc(z)e(HUN)/Bistri?a(ROM), Reformed Protestants to Nagy-Sajo. Civil Registration started in Hungary on Oct.1895, Berlad belonged to Nagy-Falu Civil Registration District.
Unfortunately Romania not allowing research of vital records from outside the country, still, you can find individual and group efforts with some results on the internet. Hope this helps, Joseph
