From records to community

I've spent years collecting data on the Jewish residents of Homestead—from well-known websites, obscure volumes, and everything in between—so I can reconstruct the history of this neglected community.

Can't find your Homestead ancestor here? This database currently has little data past 1918. Check the list of records for more details, or contact me directly—I have much more than I've posted so far.


Here you'll find data for 1,482 Jewish Homesteaders and 218 related people, drawn from the full tree of 3,728 people.
