Nearest Communities to Mora, By-County ...

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

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors and hospitals were in the next county to the east. 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 east 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 Mora and not the distance if you drove.<1>

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

Mora is located in Mora County and is the County Seat.

The following 6 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Mora County: Colfax, Harding, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Santa Fe & Taos.

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 236 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] of Mora. Of these communities, 191 are located in counties other than Mora County.

We usually exclude communities when we still need to verify their location,<2> but for the purpose of this page, we have included the unverified ('unver') and historic ('hist') communities.

After starting with the home county for Mora (which is Mora County), we list the counties in alphabetical order and for each of those counties, the closest communities are listed in order of their distance from Mora. For the following list, only those counties that contain communities within 40 miles [64.4 km] are displayed.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mora. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.9753, Longitude: -105.3335     [Map].

<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.
