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 Jankovi. This name is likely derived from the original founder of this household, Janko, Johan or Ivan.
Through the period of our studies, we have found five distinct houses which originally carried the Papa surname. This is the second of the five houses (in order of house address).
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Matija Papa b. 1761. He married Marija Flajnik b. 1765. Together, they had at least 2 children, including:
1A. Ana Papa b. 1798, m. ca. 1825 to Nikolaj Mihelčič (Markov)1.
1B. Matija Papa b. 1801, m. 1829 to Katarina Mihelčič (Markova)1 — they remained at this house.
1. Nikolaj and Katarina Mihelčič were siblings.
Matija Papa [1B] and his wife Katarina Mihelčič had 6 children, including:
2A. Johan Papa b. 1834, m. 1865 to Katarina Mihelčič (Goričana)2 — they remained at this house.
2B. Barbara Papa b. 1838, m. 1864 to Peter Flajnik (Kaplanov from Hrast).
2C. Katarina Papa b. 1841, m. 1865 to Jurij Mihelčič (Goričan)2.
2D. Ana Papa b. 1844, m. 1872 to a man from Učakovci 14.
Matija Papa [1B] m. ca. 1854 to his second wife Katarina Čemas (Galetičeva from Podklanec). They did not have any children.
2. Jurij Mihelčič and Katarina Mihelčič were siblings.
Johan Papa [2B] and his wife Katarina Mihelčič had 6 children, including:
3A. Johan Papa b. 1867. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
3B. Jože Papa b. 1872. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
At this point, the Papa lineage at this house ended. Jurij Špehar (Papov) and his wife Johana Simčič (Ravidičeva from Vukovci) started their family in this house.
Jurij Špehar and his wife Johana Simčič had 7 children.
