Nearest Communities to Smith Place, By-County ...
The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to Smith Place, on a County-by-County basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for Smith Place:
We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the southwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most hospitals were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the south.
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 west contained birth and death records; the county to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.
Please note that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance starting from Smith Place and not the distance if you drove.<1>
