This website is to inform family members and others about the Dreibelbis family.  Family ancestors originated in the Aargau Canton of Switzerland, emigrated first to the Palatinate region of Germany, and then to America.  Our Swiss/German forefather, John Jacob Dreibelbis, first set foot on American soil when he landed at Philadelphia on September 26, 1732.  

The John Jacob Dreibelbis Cousins of America, founded in 1932, has been active in researching family history, holding Reunions and other events for family members, and preserving elements of our past for future generations.  We hope you will find this site both enjoyable and informative.
