|Through the course of my years, I have come in contact with many Doremus' who have all seemed to have a common thread at least in current times. |
"Oh, your a Doremus? .... We must be related.I keep often see the name, but haven't been able to trace our family back that far."
There is a large number of family members that carry the Surname Doremus, but still do not know how they connect to the Family Tree.
The disconnect is slowly being resolved once relative at a time.
I have been very interested in our history and the interweaving of other surnames into the Doremus line that in the end will prove a very telling story.A historic oxymoron of Revolutionists and Loyalists, Slave owners and Abolitionists, Saints and Sinners, all with origins in New Jersey and then throughout the nation. From Wesel mountain, Passaic, Bergen, Paterson, Middlesex and Monmouth Counties to other states and overseas, it is a story of more questions than answers.
As one who is "not" truly qualified as what I would consider a genealogist, I truly appreciate the monumental task of those family historians who devoted time and effort to document those events that we can research today.Currently, the starting point of the Doremus line is with Cornelis Doremus from the Netherlands to pre-revolutionary New Jersey.
I hope to expand what I have researched so far, into a resource for all Doremus family members. If you have any additional information to contribute, please contact me.
