The Dreisbach Dresbach Family Database is now located at:
This is a new, revised and corrected genealogy database with over 36,000 names. It is color coded by small boxes beside the name to identify a relationship to one of the three Dreisbach immigrant patriarchs, Simon Dreisbach Sr (1743), Martin Dresbach (1751) and Henry Dreisbach (1754). Descendants of Simon have small red boxes. Martin descendants have blue squares and Henry descendants have green squares.
The database has many ways to access information. Make sure to read the opening page on the website. Useful instructions are in a paragraph at the bottom of this page.
To search - type the name of the person in the search box at the upper right on the homepage. Choose a name from the drop-down menu. A page appears showing dates of birth and death (when known), information about spouses, etc. and a colored box to indicate which patriarch the person is descended from.
Unfortunately there are still errors in the database (although many are now corrected). Report errors using the clickable link at the top of the database homepage.
One pesky problem is that some people who lived before 1900 are shown as being "alive" and therefore will not be displayed. The problem arose when these names were added to a previous database using incomplete information. We are working to correct their status to "deceased" after which they become visible to a search.
