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 Černovi. At this time, it is unknown what the origin of this name is.
Through the period of our studies, we have found five distinct houses which originally carried the Mravinec surname in Sečje Selo. This is the third of the five houses (in order of house address). The Mravinec surname is also commonly found in Perudina.
The oldest records we have found to date for a person from this house is for several siblings, including:
1A. Ana Mravinec b. 1794, m. ca. 1822 to Jurij Peršetič (Vinica 16).
1B. Johan Mravinec b. 1795, m. ca. 1824 to Katarina Ostronič — they remained at this house.
1C. Jurij Mravinec b. 1803. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
Johan Mravinec [1B] and his wife Katarina Ostronič had 5 children, including:
2A. Johan Mravinec b. 1825. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
2B. Nikolaj Mravinec b. 1827, m. 1857 to Ana Belavič (Podklanec 2)1 — they remained at this house.
2C. Barbara Mravinec b. 1830. At this time, it is unknown what happened to her afterwards.
2D. Katarina Mravinec b. 1833, m. ca. 1854 to Jurij Šutej (Šutejov) — they lived at Sečje Selo 14.
2E. Miha Mravinec b. 1837, m. 1866 to Barbara Belavič (Podklanec 2)1 — they lived at Sečje Selo 8.
1. Ana Belavič and Barbara Belavič were sisters.
Nikolaj Mravinec [2B] and his wife Ana Belavič had 8 children, including:
3A. Johan Mravinec b. 1858, died at the age of 45 in Omaha, Nebraska. At this time, it is unknown if he was ever married or had children.
3D. Miha Mravinec b. 1873. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
At this point, the original Mravinec lineage ended. Johan Mravinec (Gornji Bertov) moved in with his wife Barbara Špehar (Gornji Suhor 1). Although we have no confirmation of this, we do suspect that the Mravinec family of Sečje Selo 7 and Sečje Selo 15 do have a common ancestry.
Johan Mravinec and his wife Barbara Špehar had 8 children, including:
Jože Mravinec [4A] and his wife Barbara Juršinič had 3 children.
