The Sources:

L. Baroti:
"Beitrage zur Geschichte des Vampyrismus in SŁdungarn"
in: "Ethnologische Mitteilungen aus Ungarn", Budapest, 1894

The Case:

1753. 11. Jšnner. --
"Ujpalankaer Verwalteramt berichtet, dass zu Klein-Dikvan in einer kurzen Zeit 30, und zu Rakasdia 20 Personen, muthmasslich wegen der Vampirs, verstorben sind und bittet in Sachen das Erforderliche einzuleiten."
(Rot. Ujpalankaer Verwalteramt, III, 251)

The report says that in the village of Klein-Dikvan 30 people have died, probably on account of vampires.

The Date:

The report dates back to the year of 1753.

The Place:

Klein-Dikvan (German) or KistikvŠn (Hungarian) is now called Ticvaniu Mic (Romanian). It can be found South, somewhat to the East of Timisoara.

Possible Follow-Up:

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 authentic cases of vampirism on to those pages. So go check it out !
