Our Genealogical Helper for Dumontville ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community which surrounded our ancestors and that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Dumontville (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us insight while doing our genealogical research.

As we organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Dumontville. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Websites to Help Your Genealogy Research ...

When we do our genealogical research, we start with Cyndi's List, FamilySearch or the UsGenWeb Project. These websites either offer the information directly or else point to where you can find it. Their information is open to all and free to view - you should note that they might link to other websites which do charge.

Nearby Communities in 1895 ...

We've built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. We also indicate if the community no longer exists and is now historic.<2>

The Rand McNally Atlas shows that Dumontville had a population of 163 people in 1895 with a post office and no railroad service.

These communities are listed based on their distance from Dumontville, with the one closest to Dumontville listed first.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the southwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the south.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the west contained birth and death records; the county to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't expanded our search to the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that begins at Dumontville. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Dumontville) to Point B.

<2>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Dumontville, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
