The Tirolci household at Zilje 43 was built by Ive Jaketič (Ivičin) ca. 1870. He was the oldest son at the Ivičini household, yet he left and built his own house. He might have done so because his cousin Jure Čadonič, the next oldest male at the Ivičini, already had a son in 1866, and Ive still had none, after six years of marriage. Ive may have also gone to work in one of the many factories springing up in the Tyrol, explaining the household name, and leaving his wife at home, childless. The house is no longer inhabited.
Having no children, Ive and Mare must have invited Marko Brožič (Gornji Brožičev) and his wife Ana Vranešič (Matkova) to live at the Tirolci. Marko and Ane married, lived at the Gornji Brožiči, then moved to the USA. When they returned to Zilje in 1902, they moved into the Tirolci. They had at least 4 children, including:
1A. Jože Brožič b. 1902, died at the age of 23. At this time, it is unknown if he was ever married or had children.
Around this time, Ive Jaketič (Mikulašev) and Mare Vranešič (Matkova), Ane’s sister, moved into the Tirolci household after all their children left their home at the Mikulaši. Mare and Ane were known as the ‘Tirolke’.
