22 July 199 E-mail from  Barbara Mcllrath,  barbemac@yahoo.com

The following is her family data:Hi Judy:

Here, finally, is the descendant list of my Elizabeth Roemig ancestor. I really appreciate that you are putting this list on your website. A couple of notes: [1]The information I am providing is quite well documented and is, therefore, quite credible. [2]I have not listed anyone who is still alive (although there may be an exception or two ....)..... [3]The info on Elizabeth Roemig's descendants leads down to my Mother only -- and no further -- so if people have inquiries about possible connections, they may email me at barbemac@yahoo.com. [4]The names with *** after them are my direct ancestors.

Also, here is a very good site -- mostly about Rothrock's, however, they are another branch from George Rothrock and Elizabeth Roemig -- this site has some pictures of those Rothrock/Roemig descendants - you may even want to contact the woman whose site this is -- I have -- just to say "hi" -- her name is Nancy:


Again, thank you very, very much for posting this on your site -- I will notify you when I upload my site and you can add a link to it.

E-mail #4 from  Carol , c4romig@supernet.com, 30 Dec 1999, which reads:


.....gave you info on my family in hopes you might have some knowledge of them. The names in your file, seem so familiar with my Romigs, which some of these people spell their last name, Romich, Romick, then found some records of Romigh.

Here goes,

My Family, starts with a Michael Romig, 1620-30. He had a son, named, Christoph, born 1649. Married an Ursula Catherina. His youngest child, Hans George Romich, born 1678 In Unterkessach, Germany, married an Anna Dorothea. They had six children. Four sons, of which, immigrated to America. The first one to immigrate was the youngest, named, Christian, he arrived at the port of Philadelphia, in the year of 1749. He settled in Lancaster County, Penna. The next two brothers, they traveled together, Hans George and George Michael, arrived at the Port of Philadelphia during 1750 and settled in York County, Penna. The last brother to immigrate, Johannes, ( my ancestor), arrived through the Port of Philadelphia, during the year of 1752. He settled in Berks county,.Penna. His youngest son, Henry, born 1776, when of age, moved on to Lancaster County.

I am having problems, locating more info on the York county brothers, also, on brother Christian, of Lancaster county.

Since most of these first names are so like the first names in your file, also, they lived very close to your Romigs, that, I have hopes you might be able to find a connection.

You might want to shorten, correct, as I am also in a hurry. Seems life sure is a rush, lately. I look forward to the New Year.

Happy New Year,

Hope this is what you meant.

I am just amazed at your web site. One of the best, I have been to visit.

I do not have a web site, yet, been working on it, but must say, I am having abit of problem with the ftp program, that I needed to download, first. However, I will have a web site, soon. At first, it will be small, have alot to learn.

On my Romig family. I have such a need to learn more about the ancestors, of my ancestor. Seems like an inner drive for me.

Johannes, 3/28/1728-9/1804, arrived here during 1752, he arrived on the ship, " Snow Louisa"and settled in the Boyertown area of Berks county, Pa.

Christian was the first to settle in this country. 7/23, 1730-??? and he settled in the City of Lancaster, Pa., but during 1756 settled to the east in what was known as Earl Twp., Lancaster county, Pa. He arrived on the Ship, "Two Brothers", during 1749.

Hans George 10/01/1724--???? arrived here during 1750, On the ship, " Brothers", along with his brother, George Michael, 5/05/, 1723---1791, both of which, settled in York county, Pa.

Their Father was, Hans George Romig, 5/03, 1687---10/17/1736, Unterkessach, Germany. Mother, Anna Dorothea, ????

Hans George Parents were, Christoph Stoffel Romich born 1649 and died May 02, 1712 in Unterkessach,. Germany. Wife, Ursula Catharina????

Hans George, Father was a Michael Romich.

These records, were from, Widdern, Germany.

This might shed another light, with your Romigs, and I do not mean to be a pest, however, thought something might look framiliar to you.

Thanks for your response, I do appreciate it. Believe I spend far toooooo much time, checking into the Germany side, but, for some reason, I have this need. Hope you understand.

Thanks again,'

Hope you and your family could attend.

The Romig Reunion in June 2002 will be held at The Inn at Reading in Wyomissing, Pa.,

A suburb of Reading. A block of 60 rooms will be held for the reunion group up until a month prior to the reunion when they will be released back to the hotel. The rooms will be priced at $75.00 per night plus Pa., Sales Tax of 6%. The rate includes a continental breakfast. You will make your own reservation with the hotel. The phone number there is 1-8000/383-9713 or 1-610/372-7811. Mailing Address is:

The Inn at Reading

1040 Park Rd.

Wyomissing, Pa., 19610

If you notify the hotel prior to your flight into the Reading Airport, they can arrange for a jitney to pick you up.

The hotel will provide a conference room for display of your historical information.

When you make your hotel reservation please notify Carol that you have done so in order to get a head count, and include a $20.00 reservation fee per family to cover miscellaneous expenses. Unused money will be refunded. A group dinner will be planned at the Inn for Saturday night, and you will be informed of the cost at a later date.

The committee will try to arrange for visits to places of interest-----Historical Societies, the site of the red school, cemeteries, etc. More information on that later.

For those of you visiting Pa., for the first time you might wish to extend your visit to include other places of interest. The Capital at Harrisburg, is a little over an hour away, Hershey is almost an hour. Also about 25 minutes north of Reading at Kutztown, the famous Kutztown German Folk Festival will open June 29 and run for a week. It is nationally known for its quilt sale and people come from everywhere to purchase quilts. Back in the 30's the Romig Reunions were held in Kutztown. Also in this area are many antique markets. The route 272 strip between Reading and Ephrata is knows as Antique Alley.

Berks, Lancaster and Lehigh Counties were the areas in which your first Romig ancestors settled. Save the time on your calendar and come join us here to get a sense of where it all began.

For the local Romigs we hope you all can attend at least one day. We are sure you will enjoy yourselves and want to meet Romigs from all over the United States. Quite a few of us have done extensive research on our Romig families.
