      • On Jan's death record, it says that he was a "vymenkar". I asked Jan Zajicek for a translation. He stated that this has the meaning of being a "senior citizen" or "pensioner". The old man handed management of his economy to an offspring (or son), in exchange for the agreement that they would take care of him, and that he'd have rights for housing, food and other options.

        It also said that he was from Prasny Ujezd. We know that he was born near Kladruby. Jan Zajicek explained that Kladruby was actually under the jurisdiction of Prasny Ujezd. So, it's the same area.
