Nearest Communities to Theriot, By-Parish ...

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

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the southeast 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 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.

Please note that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance and not the distance if you drove.<1>

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

Theriot is located in Terrebonne Parish.

The following 4 parishes adjoin and form the boundaries of Terrebonne Parish: Assumption, Lafourche, Saint Martin & Saint Mary.

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 Theriot (which is Terrebonne 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 Theriot.

Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Theriot. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Theriot

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Theriot. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 29.4613, Longitude: -90.7515     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Theriot 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.
