This is a picture of a picture hanging in the Palacky museum in Hodslavice.  The address of where the site used to stand is Hodslavice #84.  Josef Riedel (1783), my second great-grandfather apparently lived there since the records show that his son, Andreas Rydel (1882) was born there.

This is the house at Hodslavice #1 which was the childhood home of the famous Frantisek Palacky (1798).  It now houses a museum in his honor.  He is known a the father of the modern Czech nation.  Read more about him on my family history website at:

I am related to Palacky through my grandfather, Ondrej Rydel's (1847) line.  Frantisek Palacky was my grandfathers 1st cousin twice removed.  This makes Palacky my1st cousin four times removed.   I am also related to Palcky through a separate line, that of my grandmother, Rosina Barton (1854).
Records also show that this home was the place of death of my 4th great-grandmother, Rosina Hromadka (1756) who was married to Josephus Palacky (1751).  She died there in 1825.

The mother of my grandfather, Ondrej Rydel (1847) was born on this site, Hodslavice #75 in the year 1823.  Her maiden name was Susanna Krizan.  My records show that her ancestors lived there since before 1772 and perhaps even generations prior.  The property has had extensive renovation and a member of the Krizan family still lives there.
