I must admit that I, too, was wondering why a New York family was posting in a Germans From Russia that settled in Saskatchewan, Canada board.

An Eric Romanowski lived in Swift Current in the 1906 Census but that is a few hours south of here. But then I decided to check a few of our FREE Saskatchewan Resources - and found Romanowski buried in the Unity Cemetery: Vincent P (1875 - 1962) and his wife, Wilhelmina (1885 - 1977). http://saskcemetery.com/unity.html. Try www.ourroots.ca for local history books and www.automatedgenealogy.com for Canadian Censuses. You can also order copies of homestead records of your family - www.saskhomesteads.com.

Maybe this will ring a bell for someone else?

My fathers family Iived near wishart Saskatchewan, on a farm ,I am sure are not related, some ended up spelling Romanoski, Romanosky even. We used Romanoski
They came from Galacia in 1908 with two children Steve& Peter also I forgot Paul? His wife was Frabonia Zatorski.
On the 1911 Cencus, they transcribe the last name from the census as Romamosk if you wish to view it. My father was John and married Mary Popadynec in
1911 Saskatchewan Humboldt 54 Township 30 Range 14 there is a split view also on the sight.
Grandfather (Gedo) was born in 1871. Wife 1884 his name was Simeon also used Sam or Samuel. they had 10 children eventually. They spoke Ukrainian, but I am sure they were of Polish decent. Also were Greek Catholic.
They were related to Bodnarchuks, Derkacz, in Wishart Sask.
