A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alert ...
Although we found mention of Alert during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alert was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alert was located in Oakland County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alert to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alert - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alert, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alert might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

Adding Alert to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
Our notes show that the earliest dated mention that we've found for Alert was on a map titled Map of Michigan (from Rand McNally, 1911).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Alert on our Genealogy Page.
