Y-DNA testing desc/o John STROUP, h/o Mary STEELY

There has not been a descendant of John STROUP (h/o Mary STEELY) Y-DNA tested, nor any of his brothers. So, technically, we have yet to genetically connect their father, Johann Philip STRAUB, with his father, Johann Pieter STRAUB, 1733 immigrant to Philadelphia.

I'd definitely encourage you to find someone to Y-DNA-test this connection especially because, as you may know, President Barack OBAMA descends from John & Mary (STEELY) STROUP, on this line:

Right now would be a good time to do it because the lab is having their annual holiday discounts; regular prices will return on 1 Jan 09.
