About the Project
The Bodman Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Bodman name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Bodman name.
As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Bodmans), by time period (18th Century Bodmans), or by topic (Bodman DNA, Bodman Occupations, Bodman Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

My primary interest is the Bodmans of Wiltshire and Somerset, England and their descendants and over the years have built up a large database and a wealth of information on Wiltshire Bodmans.
