Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Hydes Lake and then turned west". While Hydes Lake could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Hydes Lake as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Hydes Lake could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

Since confusion between counties is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Minnesota community named Hydes Lake.

<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Hydes Lake may originally have been Hyde's Lake. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Hydes Lake might be written as Hyde Lake. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Hydes Lake.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hydes Lake. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.8190, Longitude: -93.8495     [Map].

<5>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
