Place Names

Same Place — A Different Name?

Sometimes when you are doing genealogical research you may come across a place name that you do not recognize. To help solve this little problem, we have made a list of old Northumberland County place names and their present names. We have included some history of place names as well.

Information has been culled from a Department of Lands and Mines map (no date found), from several old newspaper articles, from members of our branch, and friends and acquaintances. If you can add to the list, we would welcome your input.
