Bradford Era Obituary Index
1935 - 1995

The Bradford Era Obituary Index 1935 - 1995 is the result of 15 years of dedicated research by a group of historically oriented individuals whose common interest in genealogy led to the development of this database.
Initially, Larry Richmond, William J. Reed, and Glen Reed began the project using their primitive computers.
Later, Sam Scott and Judith Shick joined in the research. At present, the database is updated yearly, and under the supervision of Larry Richmond,
and is projected to be carried into the next century. This index lists the name, age (in earlier databases), obit date (this may also be death date)
as this indexing was taken in part from necrology at the end of the year, Bradford Era used death date.
Just check a day or two later for the obit. If a street address is given, location is Bradford, Pa.
Later database used Bradford, Pa. location, location is place of death or location of obit. Cemetery was added to later databases.
Any questions or want look ups, contact the Bradford Landmark Society or bradford_landmark@verizon.net. .
