Nearest Communities to Tarrytown Listed By‑County ...

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

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

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 south 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 from Tarrytown.<1>
