Summary/Abstract: The 1748 census of the Potisje military district was until now unknown in the historiography. The original in the given document is in War Archive in Wien, in the Hoffkriegsrath fund. The census provides several categories by which the boardsmen were written down: were they in infantry or equestrial units, the name of the places, complete or incomplete weapon, names of the higher-ranking officers. The population in the military border was predominantly Serb, and the number of boardermen is more then 4000. This census is also very important, because after the dissolution of the Potisje military border, the vast majority of the soldiers emigrated to Russia.
