I have a number of
genealogy interests, including particular families, a couple regions
(southeastern New York,
northern New Jersey and Pennsylvania near Philadelphia), and
technology. I also have an off-site collection of genealogy
links that I have found useful.
I'm interested in a number of families. Here are reports based on some of my data. I'm using TMG The Master Genealogist for Windows, by Wholly Genes Software. While I document everything, I do not post my sources online. Please contact me about sources, if interested. (I only respond to reasonable inquiries!)
Note: Other Romaine/Romeyn/Romine sites are listed here.
Note #2: I had believed that John's father may have been a New York shoe maker by the name of Jacob Romaine; thus he might have named his second son Jacob (1832-1890), however my cousin Jeanne discovered a family bible of Nicholas Romaine (Romayne, Romeyn) which contains matching birth date of John in 1798. More will be forthcoming.
Note #4: July 1999: We have found John Jr.'s pension record for Civil War service (a 90-day volunteer). He was youngest son and he moved back to New York City. He died in New Jersey. He had three children. I have updated these attached pages.
A number of interesting "Romaine" individuals: Benjamin Romaine, Dr. Nicholas Romayne, Rev. Thomas Romeyn, Rev. Dirck Romeyn, Captain William H. Romaine (1833-1908 - someone unrelated who confused me), Lawrence B. Romaine (20th C bibliographer and curator, also unrelated), and Paul Romaine (20th C bookseller, also unrelated).
