Ancestor from Ocna Mures

Pardon me the use of (bad) english, but i'm french and don't know a word of romanian (shame on me!).

I'm searching for someone's help to continue my genealogy. Indeed, i have a mariage act, where it is written that my ancester, "Thomas CORDONNIER", is born in 1771 in "Marajouiar" in the hungarian province, and his parents were "Gauthier CORDONNIER" and "Marie HILLÉ".
After some researches, i think it may be "Marosújvár"
(Ocna-Mures) in Romania, and his name may be "VARGA" or "VARGHA" (or CIZMAR ?) the translation of CORDONNIER in french (in english = shoemaker).

So i'd like to know if it's reasonnable to hope to find some archives for this period, and if i can find a discussion group,
specialized in genealogy (exchanges, mutal aid,...) for this area.

I hope you've understand what i wrote, best wishes,
