Nearest Communities to Miranda By- County ...

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

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most hospitals and doctors 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 Miranda.<1>

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


Miranda is located in Faulk County.

The following 6 counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Faulk County: Brown, Edmunds, Hand, Hyde, Potter & Spink.

Our Gazetteer shows that there are 44 communities within 40 miles [64.4 km]<1> of Miranda. Of these communities, 31 are located in counties other than Faulk County.

We usually exclude communities where 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 Miranda (which is Faulk 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 Miranda.

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 drawn from Point A (ie- Miranda) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Miranda. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.9719, Longitude: -98.9643       In this case, the coordinates for Miranda have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<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.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
