Gazetteers list geographical names such as towns, settlements, villages, districts, rivers, and mountains. They identify these locations and sometimes, give historical and biographical information concerning early residents.

Several helpful gazetteers of Arizona have been published. Some of the most useful are:

  • Will C. Barnes' Arizona Place Names. Revised and enlarged by Byrd H. Granger. Tucson, Arizona: University of Arizona Press, 1982. ( Family History Library book 979.1 E2b.)
  • Walker, Henry P. and Don Bufkin. Historical Atlas of Arizona. Norman, Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma Press, 1979. ( Family History Library book 979.1 E7w.)
  • Sherman, James E., and Barbara H. Sherman. Ghost Towns of Arizona. Norman, Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma Press, 1969. ( Family History Library book 979.1 H2sj.)
