The location of Ashuanipi

Welcome to Ashuanipi ...

Although we found mention of Ashuanipi during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ashuanipi was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Ashuanipi to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Ashuanipi, please Contact Us.

We aren't confident of the location of Ashuanipi, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

We believe that Ashuanipi would be found within the (709) area code.

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 north past Ashuanipi and then turned east". While Ashuanipi could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Ashuanipi 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 Ashuanipi 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 . 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.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Ashuanipi) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ashuanipi. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 52.7675, Longitude: -66.0872     [Map].

<4>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Ashuanipi were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
