A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alberta ...
Although we found mention of Alberta during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alberta was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alberta was located in Meigs County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alberta to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alberta - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alberta, please Contact Us.
When the people of Alberta refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Albertan<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alberta might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Alberta would be found within the (740) area code.
