Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Blackburn Hamlet) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Blackburn Hamlet. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4367, Longitude: -75.5647    
<2>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<3>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Blackburn Hamlet to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 302.738 degrees.
