While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either. Another contributing factor to this lack of a household name may also be the size of a settlement. Ogulin at its peak only had 10 houses which may have lead to a lack of “official” household names being documented in church documents. Everyone knew everyone so there was no real need to uniquely identify households. Nonetheless, even though they are not documented, household names still exist for these families today.
Ogulin 9 is within the range of new houses in this settlement having been built likely in the late 1870s to the early 1880s and as late as the early 1900s.
This house was originally inhabited by a Trempus family which finds its roots at Ogulin 4. The original couple to live here failed to have any children at which point a related Trempus moved in from Ogulin 4.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Ciril Trempus b. 1885 (Ogulin 4). He married Ana Šutej b. 1887 (Kovačji Grad 8).
In the 1960s, Ciril’s nephew moved in with his wife Ana Ropar b. 1946 (Babinac). Together they had 2 children.
