A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Our Genealogy Helper for Podunk ...
So far, we have found very little information about Podunk. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>
We've added Podunk to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Podunk - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Podunk, please Contact Us.
We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:
By learning about Podunk (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 an insight into their world.
As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Podunk. 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 With Your Genealogy Research ...
When we do our genealogical research, we first turn to the websites from Cyndi's List, FamilySearch and Genealogy Trails. These professional and volunteer websites offer the information directly or else point to where you can find it. Their information is open to everyone.
To help you get started, the following links will take you to the pages that are relevant to Podunk:
Cemeteries Near Podunk ...
We're sorry, but we don't know of any cemeteries in the area around Podunk.
This is a new section of our Gazetteer and we're still collecting data about cemeteries and their location. If you know of a cemetery that should be included, please let us know.
We are looking for information such as the name of the cemetery, its GPS location, whether the cemetery is still in use or if it is historic (ie- defunct, abandoned, etc.). If it applies, we would also like to learn of any past or alternate names that the cemetery has been known by.
If you need information about a burial or interment, photos, transcripts, how to contact the cemetery or local authorities, please visit our collection of Genealogy Websites.
We've also created an expanded list of communities that existed in the 1890's and were located in the area around Podunk. See our List of 1890's Communities around Podunk.
