Nearest Communities to Stewards Mill, By-County ...
The purpose of this page is to identify those communities that are closest to Stewards Mill, on a County-by-County basis. To explain further, let's use the example from the Genealogy Helper Page for Stewards Mill:
We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the northwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most hospitals and doctors were in the next county to the west. 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 west 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.
Please note that when we give a distance, it's a 'straight-line' distance and not the distance if driven.<1>
