"Beitrage zur Geschichte des Vampyrismus in Südungarn"
in: "Ethnologische Mitteilungen aus Ungarn", Budapest, 1894
1756. 27. April. --
"Temesvarer Verwalteramt berichtet dass 30 Seelen in dem Dorf Knez seit zehn Tagen gestorben sind und selbes ouf Wambirn den Argwohn habe."
In other words:
The "Verwalteramt" of Temesvar (= Timisoara) reports that in the village Knez 30 people have died ten days ago, and there is a suspiscion that it is the work of "Wambirs".
The report dates back to the year of 1756.
Knes (German) or Knez (Hungarian) is now called Satchinez (Romanian) and can be found North-West of Timisoara.
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 !
