If you are doing genealogy research in Western Pennsylvania this book is a must. Describes why German immigrants mostly migrated to Pittsburgh and why they chose certain parts of the city in which to settle.

Very interesting and informative book on German immigrants in Pittsburgh. Did you know that H.J. Heinz & Kaufmann' s were descendants from Germany? The engineers that built many bridges, buildings, churches & the inclines in Pittsburgh were also german.

I have german ancestry and was surprised to see how influential the Germans were and still are in Pittsburgh, PA. Lots of picture images! Made me proud of my heritage & their prominence in building my hometown.

Gave this book to our son as a Christmas gift and it was very much enjoyed, especially since my husband's family is of German ancestry and have lived in Pittsburgh for several generations,

Pretty general stuff, for the most part. No surprises here. Little attention to Catholic Germans, and their churches and organizations and contributions.
