1753, 7. Feber. -- Csakovaer Verwalteramt macht der Administration die Anzeige, dass der Ortsknes von Stamora die Anzeige gemacht habe, dass in dem Ort, sich die sogenannten Vampirs eingestellt haben.
(Rot. Csakovaer Verwalteramt, II. 534)
In my own words and interpretation:
The "Verwalteramt" of Csakova reports to the Administration, that the "Ortsknes" of Stamora has reported that in Stamora the so-called "Vampires" had been stopped.
The report dates back to the year of 1753.
Stamora (German name) is now called Stamora Germana. It can be found South of Timisoara, close to the Serbian border.
I found an old magazine. In it was an article that almost exclusively contained references to other people's work. I checked out some of those references and thus found Prof. Dr. Baroti's 2 page article in another old magazine. Amazingly the good man managed to squeeze no less than 13 authentic cases of vampirism on to those pages. So go find it, go check it out !
