Subseries 1. Pittsburgh Section Project I: The Immigrant Experience

Scope and Content Notes:

This subseries contains the first set of interviews conducted by the NCJW Pittsburgh Section. Since the goal was to document how early Jewish immigrants adjusted to life in Pittsburgh, respondents were confined to foreign-born citizens who had immigrated to Western Pennsylvania between 1890 and 1924. Interviews focus on topics such as ancestry, overseas life, departure, journey, and Americanization and assimilation. Material added in 2011 can be found under the section "New Material Added."
