Hello. I am new to this forum and am pleased to have found it. I've been doing my own genealogical research. It has been a hard find, but the one thing I knew from the start; my paternal and maternal ancestors came together in Cleveland. I was not born there but have remained fascinated by the city of my parents birth. Both grew up in Cleveland Heights. They married and moved after WWII, but all their relatives and friends remained. We did visit, but I was too young to be as interested as I am now. All of those individuals have passed away except for Mother. She is resting in a long term care facility in VA. Her memories have sadly faded over the last few years.

All that was shared as a way to say hello, introduce myself, and explain why I have joined. I was wondering if anyone might be familiar with Bradford Road or Glenwood Ave. My father grew up on Glenwood. I well remember visiting the charming home of my grandparents. I still have the street number. Gram pa's hobby was carpentry. He was innovative and very talented. I recall he basically redid that home and added little niceties that were clever and practical for home enhancements. My dream. .... naturally just a dream...is to live in that same home and keep it for the family. I suppose my only question would be; how is that neighborhood now? So many changes take place in big cities. Feel free to email me or post a reply. I sure hope to here from someone with any comments related to Cleveland. Thank you for reading this post!

Hello Leslie, welcome to the forum. I just recently moved to the Cleveland metro area about two years ago. I am not too familiar with the Glenwood area, but it is close to the lake and downtown Cleveland. It is in the north eastern suburbs of the city. Its around the Cleveland Clinic which is going through alot of constrution but i do notice alot of nice old historical homes around that area. All of them are in great shape with nicely trimmed yards. I really hope that this helped a little bit. I dont know the exact house but maybe i could provide you with more information to help you out.

Default Glenwood/Bradford

I'm not familiar with Bradford, but Glenwood Rd. in cleveland heights is a nice street close to Mayfield Rd. I had a friend who lived there before moving to Florida and it was a nice house. I suggest you go on Realtor.com and plug in Cleveland Hts. and look for homes on streets north of Mayfield Rd. and south of Monticello. That is the general area.
