What we’re about

If there is a Hostetler or Hochstetler (or a half-dozen variations of this name) in your family tree, then you may be a descendant of the 1738 Swiss German immigrant Jacob Hochstetler. It is estimated that there are from five hundred thousand to one million of us living from coast to coast in the United States of America, as well as in a number of other countries.

This 7th Quinquennial promises to be the most attended, diverse/inclusive, genealogical education laden, constituency-oriented, and future concerned event of our lifetime. The Jacob Hochstetler Family Association invites distant and near family members as well as curious onlookers and seekers of the substance, facts, and outcomes of the life events of Jacob Hochstetler. ALL ARE WELCOME!
