Our Genealogical Helper for South Gower ...

Note #1: At this time, we have very little information about South Gower. We found a mention of this community during our research. Although we've added it to our Gazetteer, we have few details. If you can help us with South Gower, 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 which surrounded our ancestors and that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about South Gower (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 insight while doing our genealogical research.

As we organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for South Gower. 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.

Although we can't give a definitive list, hopefully the following will give a you a feel for the variations that might have occurred with South Gower.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance beginning at South Gower. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- South Gower) 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 South Gower. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from South Gower
