The Izklančevi household at Zilje 36 is definitely an offshoot from the Čemasi (Dolnji Stegneti today) household. The household was built ca. 1823 and the Čemas name continued until Jože Balkovec (Hajdukov iz brda) married into the family in 1909. While the status animarum records the name as Na Travniku, meaning on the meadow, most people from Zilje only recognize the name Izklančevi, meaning those from the side of the hill, no doubt referring to the household’s location on the side of the Majišče hill.
The oldest record of an ancestor of the Izklančevi we have is for Janko Čemas (Čemasov), married to Mare Starečinič in 1781, had at least 6 children, including:
1A. Štefan Čemas b. 1787, m. 1813 to Kata Jaketič — they built the Majiščari household
