I need some help with the following record for the birth of Frantisek Stefl.

http://actapublica.eu/matriky/plzen/prohlizec/6622/?strana=1...

What was the occupation of Frantisek's father and grandfather.
Frantisek was born in House #31 of Kasnov the present day village of Kaznejov. does the record also indicate that his father was born in Kasnov #31.
Frantisek's grandfather is from Drazne #13 is that the current village of Drazen? I have not be able to find the records from Drazne or Drazen is Acta Publica. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi John.
Horni lezec = upper climber is wrong translation.
It was old occupation in coal mine.
It was the worker in mine who transported material for timbering or transported extracted coal to mine's elevator.
All the best.
Tony.
(formerly also a miner)

Tony,
When my Stefl's came to the USA in 1882-1883 they all were coal miners in western Pennsylvania. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate your help.
John
