About the locality:
Izvoarele, one of the largest Transdanubian localities, is situated south of Alexandria on the highway to Zimnicea. It was mentioned in connection with Bulgarian settlers in documents from 1806–1814 and 1828–1834 (Roman, L. 1984: 142). Twenty-five Bulgarian families were reported to have crossed the Danube in 1827 and settled in Izvoarele in the following year (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 71). The 1838 registry of the population records the presence of 137 “Serbian” households (Velichi, C. N. 1965: 112). At the end of the nineteenth century the total number of residents was 1378, almost all Bulgarian, working mainly in agriculture (Lahovari, G. I., C. I. Bratianu, G. Tocilescu 1898-1902 3: 489–490). G. Weigand who visited the village in 1898 provided similar statistics (Weigand, G. 1900: 118). Later he included the village in his atlas as a locality with Bulgarian population (Weigand, G. 1909: Map 67). In 1908 S. Romanski found 360 Bulgarian families. Elderly people told him that Bulgarian settlers had come in several waves from Pleven Region and more specifically from Ralevo. During fieldwork in 1972 it was determined that almost all residents (approx. 4000) were Bulgarian and the dialect was well preserved. Aspects of contemporary social life are discussed in Şerban, S. 2007. See Vlădescu, M., C. Vulpe 1999: 104–121 regarding the bioanthropological features of the population; Васева, В. 1995 on the current state of the ritual system, Васева, В. 2001 on funeral rites; Васева, В. 2011 on traditional culture at the end of the 20th century and Грънчарова, Е. 2008 on viticultural customs on St. Tryphon’s day. Младенов, М. 1994 contains the dialect texts from Izvoarele that present traditional wedding customs.
