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

Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Quebec community named Pointe Rocheuse.
<2>While Pointe Rocheuse is in the Atlantic Standard Time Zone and does not observe daylight saving time, the area to the east is in the Newfoundland Time Zone (NST/NDT) and does..
<3>Area code (581) is an overlay for area code (418).
<4>Longitude & latitude values may not be the geographic center of Pointe Rocheuse, rather it may be a prominent intersection or the center of population, etc. It will vary depending on the source.
