You may find the GENUKI Gazetteer helpful. You can enter the name of a location and then
will get two options:
If you click on the "Place entry" option, you will see that place on a map and
have the opportunity to ask for a calculation of the distance from the location to another
If you click on the "Parish or Township" option, you'll get the details
(Archives and libraries, Cemeteries, Census, Church History, Church Records, etc.) for
"Guidance for first-time Users" and "Researching from Abroad" may be
very useful to you. Links to both can be found on GENUKI's Contents & Site Map at
