Thanks, for the info. Before I write him, do you know if he speaks any English? Also, does he have an email address?

Thanks again,
Andrew

I do not know whether he speaks English. There is no email or website contact for the museum but Mr. Badrljica is on Google+ and Picasa web albums, so try to find and contact him there via comment or message on the links I posted.



Also, if you are writing with questions or queries, consider a cultured reasonable donation to the Mokrin Heritage Museum in return for the information.

Let me know if you need more assistance or wish to contact the museum in Serbian language, I will translate and forward the correspondence- this may be the better option, usually the answer you receive in English is never as detailed as in the native language. :)

You seem to know a lot about the region. My great great grandfather Anton Haimann (Sometimes written Antal Haymann) was born in Mokrin Feb 23, 1866 to Simon Haymann and Terez Libozky. I was planning on asking if it was possible to get a birth record. FYI They were Roman Catholics.

Do you know if such church records are available or even accessible? Is it worth contacting him?

The heritage museum in Mokrin can give you information about mentions of your family in village history books, property and merchant records, their status and involvement in local village organization, location of ancestral home, headstones that exist in the local cemetery. However, they do not have the vital records - civil vital records are kept by municipal offices.

Church vital records - the original books- of all religions have been returned by the state of Serbia last year to its original authors - in your case, that would be the Roman Catholic diocese that includes the temple where your ancestors were baptized&married. Contact them directly and ask for help and information - remember, reasonable donation to the church you are contacting is a customary thing over here that makes receiving answers easier.

The original church vital records have also been microfilmed by the historical archives and are available to be viewed and researched in the archives in Serbia.

I see no listing of Roman Catholic vital records or microfilms in the Kikinda archive, but you need to contact them and ask specifically - all websites and listings of archival collections in Serbia are in dire need of updating. :)

Archive in Kikinda have records of the Roman Catholic schools for Kikinda and Mokrin, which will have info on your ancestors - for every student, a personal entry would include names of parents, address, birth year, and school reports.

Also of interest if your ancestors migrated to the area during the Austro-Hungarian land reforms would be their collection of the colonization documents 1849-1871.

Hey, sorry to reopen this old thread, but I'm having trouble finding information on Austro-Hungarian land reforms and colonization of the Mokrin area in the 19th century. I think this would be a useful topic for me to explore since my ancestor was born in Mokrin but his family came from Brno. Can you maybe elaborate a little on what you mean by land reform, or provide some links.

Thanks,
Andrew

Land reforms as they were called by the monarchy authorities included the stripping of the land from its original owners ( Serbs and other domicile Eastern Orthodox/Slavic population who were awarded land as bordersmen in the Military Frontier province in earlier centuries) as well as their subsequent resettling within the region to less fertile parts.

The parts that were earlier deemed uninhabitable due to Ottoman presence and incursions were also settled during the land reforms.

Land was awarded to the new settlers ( your ancestors among them), and that is well documented too. The other set of colonization documents includes charters and lists of individual plots that were awarded to these new colonists. Also of interest to you would be a thorough research of the land owners registers and military service records for that period which are located in the Kikinda town regional state archive I mentioned earlier.

A more detailed lookup would warrant both a thorough examination of available archival holdings and contacting the museum and archive in person.

For more historical information on the region I suggest the official history guide to Vojvodina region as an objective and balanced resource. I know it is available in all official languages of the province ( Serbian, Hungarian, German, Romanian and several more) but you will have to contact the publisher to see if it is available in English version too.
