Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Hills Ferry might be written as Hill Ferry. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Hills Ferry.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hills Ferry. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.3488, Longitude: -120.9797     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Hills Ferry have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<4>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
