Nearest Communities to North Loup, By-County ...

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

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small village in the northwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors and hospitals were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring counties in addition to the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the west contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

Keep in mind that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance starting from North Loup and not the distance if you are driving it.<1>

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



North Loup is located in Valley County.

The following 7 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Valley County: Custer, Garfield, Greeley, Howard, Loup, Sherman & Wheeler.

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that starts in North Loup. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- North Loup) 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 North Loup. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North Loup

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in North Loup. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.4955, Longitude: -98.7727     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for North Loup 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.
