The book ” Težačka kronika(Farmer’s Chronicle)”, written by Jakov Jakša Mimica, describes the hard life of the people of Mimice from past to present.
Many of them emigrated to Chile, Australia, the USA and Argentina, but also to different European countries. In 1888 the first emigrants in search for gold and better life came to Tierra del Fuego Province (the Land of Fire) in Chile, which is a country with the biggest number of emigrants from Mimice today. An interesting fact comes from Argentina where the emigrants, who were the children of Šimun and Ana Mimica-Šimunovica, named all their male children Šimun.
The detailed history of Mimice is described in ” Knjiga općena – monografija Mimica(General Book – the monograph of Mimice) “, written by Miro Mimica and Vid Mimica, on request and with the help of people from Mimice. The Agricultural Cooperative of Mimice published the book in 1972.
The book describes in detail the history of Mimice and Medići from their beginnings to present day. At the same time, it is also a document testifying a three-century-old history of this area. It describes the entire surrounding area of the Cetina and Brač canal, various events and folk customs.
Here you can find a detailed genealogy that would otherwise be lost forever.
It has five chapters:
Beginning, Chronicles, Family tree, Culture and Future.
