Ahoj Milo, Mluvim cesky a bidlim v Praze! Tak znam Vase vestnice. But I'll write in English so others can understand in the States. You say your ancestors are from Slovice, where of course Pres Eduard Benes was born. Can you please give me the name of your ancestors? Dates? I just found out that Frantisek Benes (1842-1924) and his wife Marie Benes (orignially Benesova before marriage, some relation...) (born 1843, died 1922) came from Hrebicniky. Lo and behold the village is just around the corner from Slovice.

You say you are researching E. Benes's family. Have you found any cousins that would fit my greatgrandparent's description? I would also be interested in the "noble heritage" of the Benes'. I thought we were all peasants? I've also read about the Benes/Benedict connection. Was the original Benes clan related to the Benedictine religious order? I've heard this. Thanks for your help. Tesim se na jeste korespondence.
Barbara
