Welcome to Burmis ...

So far, we found very little information about Burmis. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Burmis to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Burmis, please Contact Us.



We aren't confident of the location of Burmis, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>


While we don't have a date for the founding of Burmis, you might get a feel for it by knowing that during our research the earliest mention that we found (so far) was on a map dated 1951.

Time Zone: The area where Burmis was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: MST- Heure Normale des Rocheuses (HNR).

Note: If you travel west from Burmis, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

Footnotes ...

<1>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 significantly 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 Burmis, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (403).
<4>If we found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
