Adding Navajo to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Navajo in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Navajo elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Navajo on our Genealogy Page.

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are two Arizona communities named Navajo: This one is located in Apache County and the other is located in Mohave County.

Beyond Arizona, there are 7 communities that are also named Navajo - they are located in California (2), Montana and New Mexico (3).
