Nearest Communities to New Albion, By-County ...

The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to New Albion, on a County-by-County basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for New Albion:

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors and hospitals were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring counties in addition to the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the west contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

Keep in mind that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance starting from New Albion and not the distance if you drove it.<1>

If you're researching your genealogy, we hope that the following following information helps.



New Albion is located in Butler County.

The following 8 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Butler County: Black Hawk, Bremer, Cerro Gordo, Chickasaw, Floyd, Franklin, Grundy & Hardin.

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 214 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of New Albion. Of these communities, 194 are located in counties other than Butler County.

We usually exclude communities when we still need to verify their location,<2> but for the purpose of this page, we have included the unverified ('unver') and historic ('hist') communities.

After starting with the home county for New Albion (which is Butler County), we list the counties in alphabetical order and for each of those counties, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from New Albion. For the following list, only those counties that contain communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] are displayed.

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that stretches from New Albion. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- New Albion) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in New Albion. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.6428, Longitude: -92.7316     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for New Albion have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>Our data comes from many sources and some sources are more dependable than others. When we add communities to our Gazetteer, we try to verify that we have the correct location for the community. We mark a community as 'Unverified' when we aren't confident about our data and want to do further checking.

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 larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now.

Since our Gazetteer contains over 100,000 communities, verifying everything is going to take time. If you find an error or can help us to improve our accuracy, please let us know.
