Glossary and Definitions ...
- FIPS Codes
- In the past, the federal government created a set of codes that are used to uniquely identify States, Counties and Populated Places (such as a community like Sanders Hill). These codes form the Federal Information Processing Standard. (specifically FIPS Document 55-3).
The State Code consists of two digits, the County Code consists of three digits and the Place Code consists of five digits. The County and Place Codes must be used together with the State Code to be truly unique.
For example, the following codes apply to the community of Sanders Hill:
- State Code: 01 (Alabama)
- State / County Code: 01 / 109 (Pike County)
- State / Place Code: 01 / 67835
The FIPS Codes have been replaced by an ANSI standard and the GNIS Feature ID. Although obsolete, the FIPS Codes are still in use by some organizations.

- GNIS Codes
- The function of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is to establish uniform names for geographic features (eg- communities, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, etc). The BGN was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. BGN–accepted names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), which is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
A unique and permanent identifier has been assigned for each feature in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive.
Sanders Hill has been given the GNIS Feature ID of '126347'. Click here to see the GNIS Record for Sanders Hill.
|<1>||It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Sanders Hill may originally have been Sander's Hill. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Sanders Hill might be written as Sander Hill. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Sanders Hill.|
