Re: How to find 1903 residents of 550 High Street, Pittsburgh, PA? #usa #records

Sherri Bobish


A search in Pittsburgh city directories for 530 High in the keyword field, and no surname in the search, gets two hits.

1897 - J.W. HOLTZHEIMER, waiter

The only other hit is in 1934.

530 High gets no hits in the timeframe 1900 to 1910.

A search for 530 High Street in the USPS zip code search finds no such address.

The fact that the address gets only 2 hits in the Pittsburgh directories at Ancestry makes me think that the address written on the manifest is a mistake.  If it was a valid address it would show up in the many Pittsburgh directories from that timeframe.

I agree with Alan's idea to call the local Pittsburgh public library research librarian for info on the address.

Good luck in your search,
