Jane,

My favorite quote is Scottish...it is the declaration of Arbroath !

".for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."

Now you know how I would vote...... if given the chance

Regards
Mike

Jane.
I have been told to use the National Library of  Scotland website and click map images. Apparently the maps are available there

Yes you could try the OS maps here - http://maps.nls.uk/os/  I just had a real map handy so used that, working from the co-ordinates.

Jane,

I have found it on the 1953 OS map. It was exactly as you said just up the lane from  Frongelyn farm.
I have looked it up on google maps and there doesn't appear to be even a ruin. I will however go there
and ask at the farm if they can say exactly where the cottage/ruins were.
I have to go to Llanfihangel Ystrad  anyhow to the churchyard where I believe my Great x 3 grandfather is buried. I have checked the records on line and with Ceredigion Family History Society and Dyfed Family History Society this time last year and also with the NLW....to no avail...But ! I have found transcription errors in their work so I am wiling to take a chance that I will find the grave.
Thank you again for your help.
Regards
Mike

Try using "Where's the path"  http://wtp2.appspot.com/wheresthepath.htm  allows side by side of OS and aerial photos with options to change to older maps too.
