WWW.SHROUDEATER.COM - The Vampire of Bukowno - POLAND
"Vampires, Burial and Death - Folklore and Reality" 
Yale University Press, New Haven & London, 1988
It would seem that a deceased person was repeatedly seen in the village of Bukowno in Poland. The villagers sought the help of a priest. This one ordered to open up the grave and take the corpse out. A piece of paper with the dead man's name on it was put under his tongue. The body was turned face downwards and a shovel was used to give him a blow on his posterior. After this remarkable ceremony had taken place, the dead man did no longer return to the village.
No date is given, but Barber gives us his source: Veroboj Vildomec "Polnische Sagen" . So we can safely assume that the case must be from well before 1979.
There is a place called Bukowno somewhere in the South of Poland. South of Lodz and to the SouthEast of Wroclaw.
Read Barber's story and compare it to mine. Find Vildomec's version, and - with a little bit of luck - you might find additional information and/or another source there.
