Where in Anglesey
« on: Monday 02 May 11 11:24 BST (UK) »
Hi
I have been researching my family tree, and members of my family were born in Bodeuan, Anglesey..however there is no trace of this on any of the maps.  Dose anybody know where this is, or if it has changed names since?
Thanks, Pwtan

Could this be Bodedern, perhaps?

The National Gazeteer of Wales also lists Bodwyn. It's near Llanrhyddlad

I've  mentioned this with a map link. It seems to be the nearest in sound to Bodeuan

Hi Pwtan

Could it be Bodowen, not far from Maltreath.
