The names of 16 generations of ancestors in Serbian

permanent link

I read about an interesting feature of the Serbian language (and tradition) on the website of the Croatian Genealogical Society: according to the post there are no less than 16 generations of ancestors named in Serbian.

The male line starts with otac (father) and ends with beli orao (white eagle - he). The female line starts with majka (mother) and ends with bela orlica (white eagle - she).

Topographical maps of former Yugoslavia

permanent link

Browsing through the site's topics covering history I came across a thread where one of the forum members started to share his collection of 1:75,000 old military maps covering Croatia from the time of Austria-Hungary (early 20th century). If that's not enough, post #221 has a link to a huge collection of topo maps of former Yugoslav republics. The scale for the maps vary. For Croatia the site has 1:25,000 ones (grid), just like for Slovenia (grid), Serbia is covered by both 1:50,000 and 1:100,000. There is also a section for Crna Gora (Montenegro). These maps were made in the 1970s.

Habent sua fata actae - things take a turn for the better in Belgrade, Serbia

permanent link

To see whether there is something I could grab for RadixHub from the websites of archives in Serbia I took a short trip to them. A spin-off of this virtual travel is this entry on RadixLog.

In Nov 2007 the National Archives of Serbia signed an agreement with the Pravoslav (Greek Orthodox) Church of Serbia to help the preservation (salvage) of church-owned archivalia.

Two kilometres of old papers waited for their saviour in the bell tower of the St. Mark's Church in Belgrade. When the archivists of the Serbian National Archives arrived in Jan 2008 the condition of the papers was already miserable - their refuge housing lasted for 17 years. Now the caring hands clean, dehydrate, disinfect, pack and process further the documents and books. This material includes church metrical registers amongst other valuable archivalia.
