Welcome to Romany Jib
Affiliated member of the Romany History Hub
This is a sister-site to Romany Genes 1 & 2 and American Romanichals.
I began the sites mentioned above as a way of collecting and preserving the history of the Romany people.
As it is difficult for interaction to take place on the above sites and many have asked for the ability to chat together , hence Romany Jib was created to accommodate these request’s.
This site's set-up allows users to interact together and exchange information in a user friendly way and provides a platform where we can all share family history and help each other.
This easy and friendly atmosphere will hopefully encourage the less experienced among us and people just starting on their family history journey who need help in understanding, the various resources available and how to use them to get the best results.
There are site rules and they can be found in the menu under "Copyright and Site rules”
We have affiliated (Social) sites on the popular Social Media site FaceBook:- please feel free to join if you would like a more instant response to a query .
Romany Heritage Family History
At times many will have experienced difficulty with this site loading and sometimes failing to load altogether! This has also resulted in a failure to be able to “Log In” this issue is also affecting other Wetpaint sites as reported on Wetpaint Central! The web browser used and the time of day makes a difference to this issue for me, with Google Chrome being the most reliable of the browsers! Unfortunately “Chrome” is not totally compatible with Wetpaint Wiki’s and not all the editing tools work. All I can say is sorry to those of you experiencing this difficulty and it is hoped that Wetpaint manage to rectify this problem soon.
The site is maintained by the moderation team and no payment of financial help has been asked for or received to keep the site in operation. The input by the site members is the life blood of its success, and it is their desire to help one another that will ensure the continuation of RomanyJib, and I hope that is a place we all want to come to share and help each other trace our families, and I hope it will continue to be a place where people will come and feel happy to add their family information.
I hope you will join us to participate in the researching and recording of Romany family history for future generations, in the true spirit of history and research.
We have many members of the old lines of Romany families and they are always happy to help with questions and I know through this site we have helped people find lost relatives and much more, we are very proud of our members and their trust in us and this site and without them this site would not exist

Does anybody know anything about these two circa 1755 - 1835? Their daughter, Esther (1794) married James Swales from a romani family.
I would like to know whether Jeremiah or his wife were likely to be Romanis too?
I wonder wether Jeremiah was related to John Sowden (wife Dorothy) of Kendal, Westmorland?
