Privately published for the Dreisbach Family Association by Smith-Bates Printing and Design of Klamath Falls, Oregon. 1998.
This book contains the known genealogies of the Dreisbach family as of 1997 when the data was collected. One partial update was issued in 2001 under the title: The Dreisbach Book Reunion 2001 Supplement. It is available for free download on this site. See site index to the left.
The book lists the known descendants of 1743 immigrant, Simon Dreisbach Sr and the descendants of 1751 immigrant, Martin Dreisbach/Dresbach Sr. Also listed are descendants of 1754 immigrant, Henry Dreisbach, who settled in Bucks Co.
Other immigrants and their descendants are also listed - these are people who probably are related in some way to either Simon Dreisbach or Martin Dreisbach, but the relationship has not been proven.
Important Correction on p. 70. Jost Dreisbach did NOT marry Elizabeth Rachenberger - the best evidence indicates he married Elizabeth Dieter, daughter of his neighbor, John Dieter.
