Wilno vampire lore

Wilno sign

Jan Perkowski visited this small town, northeast of Barry’s Bay, Ontario, in 1968-69 to gather local vampire lore. Home to Canada’s first Polish settlement, Wilno gained another claim to fame when Perkowski’s report was published in 1972:

Perkowski’s report begins with (page 2) “a picture of a small grave enclosed by a white picket fence. The quote under the photograph says that if a vampire is not destroyed before he is buried, he rises again and carries off his relatives and others in the neighbourhood.”

“It happened at Wilno….They had to dig it up and cut off the head while he sat in the coffin.”
