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 firstname.lastname@example.org. .
Your request will be handled by a volunteer. The volunteer will be unable to do detailed research.
Please limit your request to no more than 4 per email/letter. You are welcome to submit an additional request after 2 weeks.
Obituaries from 1888 through April 1946 are available on-site. Obituaries from May 1946 to present must be obtained off-site.
Please allow extra time to obtain the off-site obituaries.
Keep in mind early obituaries often consist of two or three sentences in a column titled "Daily Developments" and may not give the name of surviving or deceased family members.
The date shown in the index is the approximate date the obituary appeared in The Bradford Era.
It may or may not reflect the actual death date.
We will ask a fee of $5.00 per obituary to cover the cost of obtaining, copying and mailing.
