Thank you cupoflife, this is only my second post, and as I am new to this site, only just realised I can only make personal messages after the third post, so I will have to thank you this way, so thank you for your links. And will be scouring them, soon. Have you any link to the wenitongs?

I am also wondering what back ground Romanis, comes from. As a wenitong married a romanis, there seems to be quite a mix in this family lol

Sorry, no link to the family, just helping :)

Not sure if this is your ROMANIS? Also shown as ROMANOS/ROANES.
QLD Death (connections to a big family with many more so search QLD BDM)
1902 C4170 Romanis Romanis; Father - ; Mother - ; ** born India aged 27 years   

There also seem to have connections with the surname AVISAMI, SINGHO, O'SING, HUEPEDEN, APPO, SENGSTOCK...and other, so plenty to research :)

Hi - my name is John Wenitong. I live in Australia and wondered if this thread was still active etc. I am part of that family through my Father, Lionel Ronald Keith Wenitong (dec), and I have one pic of my father's parents if you are interested. The aboriginal side came from my mother's side (Lorna - nee Minniecon - dec), whose mum was a Kabi-kabi person who spoke the language etc... I am on Facebook for social contact etc:)
