Footnotes ...

<1>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 significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Widtsoe, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that begins in Widtsoe. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Widtsoe) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Widtsoe. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Widtsoe

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Widtsoe. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.8324, Longitude: -111.9956     [Map].

<5>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
