 By Radius

A page for any specific location is available from either the county page, clicking the name of the location on the right side, or from browsing an individual by clicking a place and then choosing "More on this location".

From this page is an option "List data within 25 miles of (Name of Location)".  This gives a different view of the people and places, but within a radius of miles around the chosen location.

Viewing by radius can be helpful when you are searching multiple cities in an area, but not contained within one county, or multiple counties in an area but not contained within one state.  The distance is editable, and the people and places shown are filterable by branch, century, and surname.

Note that all of this depends on the cities, towns, churches, and cemeteries each being coded with latitude and longitude.  Many are already done, but many are not, especially churches and cemeteries.  Feel free to help out with your places, under Account > Places.  See its Help page for more information.

More options and information to be added to this page as needed.
