Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Michigan's counties, including Arenac, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alger - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Alger). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Alger or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Alger) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alger. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.1256, Longitude: -84.1211       In this case, the coordinates for Alger have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
