How Each Column Helps You With Your Research

1. POPULATED PLACE column: names the "populated place" or "location" of interest.

2. FORMER NAME, if applicable column: if the location was known by another name, it is listed here (a year of name change is given, if known).

3. TYPE column: gives type of location (i.e. village, town, city, etc.) - the size definition varies per province.

4. FHL CATALOG column: links the "catagories of sources" available in the Family History Library for this populated place or location.

5. WIKIPEDIA column: links to background information regarding this location or its county if Wikipedia does not have an article for that specific place.
