Footnotes ...

<1>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Dawes Point may originally have been Dawe's Point. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Dawes Point might be written as Dawe Point. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Dawes Point.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting from Dawes Point. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Dawes Point) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dawes Point. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.6363, Longitude: -88.2536     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Dawes Point have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<4>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
