Nearest Communities to Skidder, By-Parish ...

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

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

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

Keep in mind that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance from Skidder and not the distance if you are going to drive it.<1>

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

Skidder is located in Natchitoches Parish.

The following 8 parishes adjoin and form the boundaries of Natchitoches Parish: Bienville, De Soto, Grant, Rapides, Red River, Sabine, Vernon & Winn.

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 418 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of Skidder. Of these communities, 338 are located in parishes other than Natchitoches Parish.

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 parish for Skidder (which is Natchitoches Parish), we list the parishes in alphabetical order and for each of those parishes, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from Skidder. For the following list, only those parishes that contain communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] are displayed.

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Skidder. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.1007, Longitude: -93.0571     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Skidder 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.
