I've looked at Shtelt Seeker and have too many choices, towns
in Austria, Czech Republic and Germany. While I believe the
town to be in present day Germany, I really have no idea what
to assume. Can any one narrow the list down for me and point
me toward the correct area?
Bodendorf (Bad Bodendorf) is already identified by you as being
located in Rheinl[and], Germany. Town location is also verified
by WOWW gazeteer at 5033 0713.
