Township or County. I am researching my ancestors in Bedford, Bedford County,
Pennsylvania. If I knew that Bedford County, Pennsylvania, was split into three

others that split off from it. Now if I had someone that lived in Bedford,
Bedford County, Pennsylvania then you are right that note would not be picked up.
None of those notes are prinited on any reports anyway so it is really just
for your information. If you did want to pass it on you would have it at your
