Wow, you are a fountain of information! Much appreciated!!!

Yes, I see the other farms mentioned on the 1901 census record that my gr. grandfather is on. He is the only crofter, the rest are farmers. I take it that a croft was much smaller, and as he is in his 70's at the time, I suppose it was like their retirement home.

I googled the road yesterday that travels through the Birkenbog land. You can view it as if you are driving in the car. I looked around at some of the old houses and wondered which one they might have lived in. Fantastic tool for someone like me who is overseas!

Thanks again for all of your help!
Susan
