Bomar Family Genealogy Forum
What do you think about the message 208 in our forum concerning some brothers William and John? If you search in the Bomar forum for the names William and John and another key word, brothers, there might be something there to help us. I think generally the families if not related in the colonies were probably related in England. For England research, perhaps we could use the International Genealogical Index and look at the similiarity of Bomar, Bowmer, Bonar, and Bommer using some typical first names as John, William, and Thomas. We could look at the counties to see if one county for instance Devon has several spellings of "Bomar" inserting make believe first names since first names are required in the IGI. I use IGI to obtain a sampling of what was happening in England.
