Hey, I've been doing some genealogical research in Allegheny/Armstrong caaahhhhhnties from the 1800s.

Suffice to say, some of those family trees look like piles of spaghetti. Sheesh.

There's nothing wrong with Bradford in general.

In other words, some poor caveman died wondering where he left his cordless Dewalt drill.

Spent many a summer near Bedford. Pretty place.
Any that go be sure to visit the Flgt 93 Memorial in Shanksville...30 miles or so away.

Both Bedford and Bradford are nice little communities to visit in the summertime.
But you really shouldn't get 'em confused just 'cause they kinda sound alike.
Bedford has a much more moderate climate, even though it's up inna mountains.
Bradford is way up there, almost in New York State, closer to the arctic circle 'nat.
You'll freeze your dupa there in the wintertime.

I used to vacation in Bedford Falls until it became Pottersville.

BTW, how many jobs were lost?

No mention of the earlier finds in the Pittsburgh area (south) of early civilization(s) - also about 15,000 years old. The ealier site is an 'outcropping' or something like that. Thought 'unz would like to know about that one too. There was also something found in the McKees Rocks area, if memory serves.

Yep, that's located west of Bedford going towards Pittsurgh.
It's near the area we discussed on this thread: Fort Ligonier offers more bang for the buck
