1753. 14. Feber. --
"Csakovaer Verwalteramt zeigt an dass in dem Districtsort Wermesch die Vampire grassiren sollen."
(Rot. Csakovaer Verwalteramt, II. 542)
Which means that the "Verwalteramt" of Csakova reports that in Wermesch, a village within the district, there is a plague of vampires.
The report dates back to the year of 1753.
Wermesch has been renamed to Vermes. It can be found South-East of Timisoara and South-West of Lugoj.
Following a lead in some weird old magazine, that almost exclusively contained references to other people's work, I found Prof. Dr. Baroti's 2 page article in another old magazine. Amazingly the good man managed to squeeze no less than 13 cases of vampirism on to those pages. So go check it out !
