A Place for Family History

Our Family Web Site
In 1998, Randy Romrell had a chance meeting with my sister, Arlene Forde (Mills). She was curious about his name, Romrell, since every one we have met are related. Curiosity was peaked, and it was decided to hold a large extended reunion for all descendants of Francois Romeril (Francis Romrell). It was the anniversary of his 200th birthday coming the following year.

As part of the preparation, a web site was established. This web site did not originate with me, but Chris Romrell and Tim Stay were the originators of it. They were instrumental in many features the present web site contains. When the Web site service provider went out of business, I had collected many of the features, and put it back on line for the family. From doing that, I apparently inherited the web site.

As the web site evolved, it became more instrumental in finding family members. Not only the children of George, who's line I am through, but we have found the other families, Charles Abraham, and others. Many new friendships have been made.

The family decided to continue the reunions about every 3 years at the Stake Center and Romrell Park in Ogden, Utah, which was the homestead of George Romrell and Francis. It is in August nearest the birthday of Francis. The web site has become instrumental and a gathering point for the family. We have a place where family news, genealogy, and friendships may be made.

Sharing information is the big purpose of the web site, and your suggestions are welcome. We are in the business of collecting the family and their records. This information is for sharing with all the family members. Take what you want, a biography, a photo, or even genealogy from our Gedcom/PAF files. This site is for you.
