Who can join? All Dreisbach/Dresback/Trespach/Driesback/etc. MEN are welcome to join! If you're a woman, or a man with a surname other than Dreisbach, we suggest you look into the Family Finder DNA project. This is an autosomal DNA test which looks at portions of chromosomes 1 to 22 plus the X chromosome.

Click on "Continue" and you are done.
Your kit will be mailed to you. When you receive it, in the morning, before you have anything to eat or brush your teeth, swab the inside of your cheek to collect your DNA sample. Do this for two mornings. Send the kit back along with payment.
That's all there is to it!
REMEMBER TO USE THE Dreisbach PROJECT SITE (we have a big reduction in price!)
Encourage other male family members to take the DNA test. The more tests we have done, the more accurate the information.
