Nearest Communities to Standard, By-Parish ...

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

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

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 south 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 starting from Standard and not the distance if you drove it.<1>

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

Standard is located in Vernon Parish.

The following 6 parishes adjoin and form the boundaries of Vernon Parish: Allen, Beauregard, Natchitoches, Rapides, Sabine & Newton (TX).

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 278 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of Standard. Of these communities, 202 are located in parishes/counties other than Vernon 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 Standard (which is Vernon Parish), we list the parishes/counties in alphabetical order and for each of those parishes/counties, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from Standard. For the following list, only those parishes/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' (or point-to-point) distance beginning in Standard. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Standard) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Standard. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.1557, Longitude: -93.3610     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Standard 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.
