Hi Jane,
It's four and a half years since I last posted on this thread. I am remiss about three years ago (sorry ) I visited the ruin of Rhydycais Fach  after meeting with the farmer at Frongelyn who owns R.Y.C.F.
A very late post to say thanks.

It only works for adopted roads, and not in every country in the world, but Google Street View is very useful for finding if a building still exists. Recently I planned to visit a significant house in my research, but thought I'd look to see which end of a long road was the position of the house, and I discovered that there was a gap from number 30 to number 36, and a block of flats have been built in the place of these houses. A bit more Internet research showed that the house I was looking for was destroyed in 1940. It saved me a journey.  Google Earth can also be useful. Plus it's great fun anyway.

My ancestors are probably turning in their graves, not that I can actually find any of them.
