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 originally carried the name of Mikanovi. This name is derived from the original patriarch who was named Mika or more commonly Nikolaj.
This house is the fourth of nine documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Sečje Selo. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1880.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Nikolaj Radovič (Radovičev) b. 1843. He married Ana Šutej (Oberšanova) b. 1853. Together they had 2 children which died in infancy or early childhood.
Nikolaj Radovič m. 1879 to his second wife Katarina Puhek (Tkalčeva). Together they had 6 children, including:
1A. Barbara Radovič b. 1882, m. 1904 in Great Falls, Montana to Peter Mihelič (Dobliče).
1B. Marija Radovič b. 1886. At this time, it is unknown what happened to her afterwards.
1C. Katarina Radovič b. 1891. At this time, it is unknown what happened to her afterwards.
After living in Great Falls, Montana for 24 years, Peter Mihelič and Barbara Radovič returned home to Sečje Selo and died there several years later. At that point, this house went unoccupied.
