Adding Alberta 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.

We originally found mention of Alberta in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Alberta elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Alberta on our Genealogy Page.

Communities Also Named Alberta ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are 11 communities that are also named Alberta - they are located in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan (2), Minnesota, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Henry, 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>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Alberta refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Alberta may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alberta - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alberta) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alberta. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.3639, Longitude: -93.6697       In this case, the coordinates for Alberta have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
