Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Louisiana's parishes, including Bienville, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Alberta refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Alberta may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alberta - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Alberta) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Alberta. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alberta

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alberta. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.2360, Longitude: -93.1549       In this case, the coordinates for Alberta have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
