While every house in Slovenia has a civic address, many houses also carry a household name. These names are how other people typically referred to that family. This house carries the name of Dolnji Adlešiči. This name is used to differentiate this Adlešič family from others within Novoseli.
Through the period of our studies, we have found four distinct houses which originally carried the Adlešič surname in Novoseli. This is the third of the four houses (in order of house address).
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Matija Adlešič (Cetinkin) b. 1821. He married Magdalena Starešinič b. 1831. Together, they had at least 12 children, including:
1A. Marija Adlešič b. 1852, m. ca. 1874 to Miha Žunič (Stuparov from Žuniči).
