It is here where my third cousin Charles Pechousek lives. Charles' branch of the family lived in the Ukraine for several generations. Charles returned to Czechoslovakia in about 1966 married, and has two daughters now also married and with children. His daughters are both very accomplished violinists with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Charles' home is located on a small stream directly across from the Jindrichuv Hradec Castle. Charles, an Historical Architect, was responsible for restoration of the castle - a project lasting about 15 years. Charles was a very kind and gracious host who showed us around southern Bohemia, and with whom we spent many hours in pubs over good Czech beer, discussing our common family history.
