Volume II consists of parts IV-The Old Kingdom and part V-The New Romanian Annexed Provinces. What is today the Republic of Moldova was named Basarabia by the Romanian authorities of the time, and is listed under the newly annexed provinces in part V.
Each part is subdivided by județ (county), and each county section begins with general information about the county, followed by information about the county's seat, and then about other notable towns. After these sections comes part II. Comune rurale (rural communities), which describes villages, often with populations under 1,500. A comuna is a small administrative district often consisting of two or more villages or other populated sites, but sometimes consisting of just one site. The directory lists all the sites within a comuna and asterisks the site that serves as the administrative center for the comuna. Volume II concludes with Tabela Comunelor Urbane și Rurale (index of urban and rural towns) - organized in four regional indexes to the approximately 8,500 villages, towns and cities for which the directory provides information.
Part V of the volume contains three paginations - the Bucovina region, the Ardeal region, and the Basarabian region all begin anew with page 1, and the Tabela Comunelor has yet another set of pagination. For ease of use, all numbers below refer to the digital image numbers. This finding aid provides the digital image numbers for each county, its seat, and the other towns it contains. It also lists for each region "Other notable towns," which are the towns and larger villages that are listed immediately after the information for each county seat but before the information in part II. Comune rurale. Virtually all of the "other notable towns" have populations over 1,500, whereas most sites listed under part "II. Comune rurale" have populations under 1,500.
