Explanation by Dr. Stokes

"The location of each view which appears in this collection may be identified using the two-part map of Natchitoches Parish which accompanies the photographs and is titled, "Location Map - Folk House Survey." The routes covered by the survey are marked with large dots placed along the roads on the map. The map is divided into a grid system in which squares are identified by number and letters."

Dr. Stokes's original map is in two parts. It is shown here digitally stitched together.
