Our Genealogy Helper for Macdowall ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Macdowall (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Macdowall. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from MacdowallOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Macdowall. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.0172, Longitude: -106.0116

<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
