Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Alderney Point and then turned west". While Alderney Point could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Alderney Point as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Alderney Point could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting in Alderney Point. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Alderney Point) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alderney Point. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4903, Longitude: -60.9572     [Map].
