Nearest Communities to Springfield By-  ...

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

We have great-grandparents who lived in a small community in the southwest corner of their home . During their lives, most doctors were in the next to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the to the south.

When doing our research, we make it a practice to expand our search by looking in neighboring in addition to the in which they lived:  their home contained property and probate records; the to the west contained birth and death records; the to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't checked the neighboring , 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 Springfield.<1>

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Springfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.5640, Longitude: -79.4334       In this case, the coordinates for Springfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
