Our Genealogy Helper for Copperfield ...

So far, we have found very little information about Copperfield. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Copperfield to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Copperfield, please Contact Us.

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 Copperfield (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 Copperfield. 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.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the northwest corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors and hospitals were in the next county to the west. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of 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 included the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Although our information shows that the community of Copperfield is historic, it would have been located within present day Orange County.

The following counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Orange County: Grafton (NH), Addison, Caledonia, Washington & Windsor.

Cemeteries Near Copperfield ...

Below are cemeteries that are in the vicinity of Copperfield.

This is a new section and is likely to have errors. If you find an error, such as a missing cemetery or we have the wrong name, please let us know. If you know of them, we would also appreciate learning about previous or alternate names.

If you click on the [Map] that follows each cemetery's name, a Google map will open showing a satellite view of the area where the cemetery is located.

The goal of this partnership is to assemble a database about the current and historic newspapers of the United States. This includes a growing collection of scanned images from selected papers.

Although we're unaware of any newspapers that were published in the immediate area of Copperfield, there are papers which were published within 20 miles [32.2 km]. A list of those papers, sorted by paper name, can be found on the Extended Newspaper List for Copperfield.

Nearby Communities in 1895 ...

We also indicate if the community no longer exists and is now historic.

While we didn't find Copperfield in the Atlas, the following 1895 communities would have been found near the current location of Copperfield.

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 Copperfield, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Copperfield) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Copperfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.9098, Longitude: -72.2873     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Copperfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
