Article 10: Barthlme Lapornig and Maria Štempihar

This is an example of one of the unexpected problems that can arise when conducting research using the old registries. You locate an entry with a name you are looking for, then find you cannot confirm that you have the right person/couple because the bride is a widow, and her data is entered under her deceased husband’s surname.

Article 6: Age of Majority

Ptujski list (28 September 1919), Year 1, number 27

The following is a translation of an article published in the newspaper, Ptujski list, on the 28th of September 1919, which explains the introduction of changes to the law related to the age of majority.


Age of Majority

According to Serbian and Montenegrin law, an adult is someone who has reached the age of 21. According to Austrian law, which was applicable in our country, and also in Croatia, a person reached the age of majority at 24; this also applied to Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was necessary to make the regulations more consistent, the more so because our regulations were out of step with those of others. Our neighbours, the Germans and Italians, and also the French, reach the age of majority at 21. The Swiss already reach the age of majority at 20. The same rule applies in Russia. The Republic of German-Austria examined these regulations and decided that someone has reached the age of majority at 21. According to the Act of 31 July, 1919 (Age of Majority Act dated 31 July 1919, number 640/19 Official Gazette), which was published on the 2nd of September in “Službenih Novinah”, and applicable throughout the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, it became law that every citizen has reached the age of majority at the age of 21. The Act is not retrospective. All who were, on the 2nd of September, over the age of 21, but less than 24, were considered to have reached the age of majority as of the 2nd of September 1919. We welcome this Act as small, but very important step, on the way to bringing uniformity to the laws in Yugoslavia.
