COVID slowed us down for a couple of years, and now a few health issues challenge us. We're still traveling if not writing about it quite so much. Our goal in 2022 was get to all seven continents in one year... and we did it.
Going forward health issues may not allow us to travel. No one can take away those memories though. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.
It looked like we needed a place where you could find other McEwans.
We were getting a lot of comments on "Cousin" Jim's My Clan McEwen Research page. That is listed under Clan McEwen stories... and we'd still like to hear those, but...
We were worried that you might all be getting lost.
If you just want to try to find other MacEwans, this is the page that we hope will help you.
We did hear from many of you. Since they were short queries and ended up on separate pages, they were hard to sort through.
So we decided we would take all of those separate pages down and consolidate them into a list here.... below.
If you have an answer to any of these questions, or a question about a relative you'd like to find, post them here and we will try to keep sorting them out... it's getting a little complicated, so I hope we can keep up.
Send in an ancestor's name and brief description. Of course, we'd love more than a brief description... your choice. Send your e-mail address too so other Clan members can contact you if they have information for you or whatever.
So check out the form below and/or read through the list, and maybe you can hook up with one another!
Finding Castle MacEwen
Clan MacEwan Stories
Jim's Clan McEwen Research
Isle of Skye Welcome
I've moved a couple of requests here from other pages, and I'll try to keep things sorted out and point you in the right direction...
Please help, and Good luck to everyone with finding your Clan MacEwan or McEwen or any other way your ancestors ended up spelling it!
Here's our consolidated list to help find other McEwans is below the contact form. You can also just contact us with a note.
One more thing.... The submissions below the form to find other McEwans come up on separate pages... and on each page there is a place for comments. We really don't know if you've found each other or not. (We don't keep any of this on file.) So if you end up finding someone, or finding some new information...
Please come back and share that too! It's fun to hear about it all. And if you're taking a trip to Scotland to find the castle or whatever... go on over to Clan MacEwen stories and share that.
And remember to scroll on down to find other McEwans from shorter submissions.
Do you want to find other McEwans? Ask away! Check through to see what others have written and post your own questions about McEwens, MacEwens or clan ancestors... by any spelling.

I am descended from John McEwen who married Graced Wotherspoon. They married in Bridgeton, Glasgow. Does this ring any connections with anyone?
I would love to find other McEwans
Going from family traditions, I expect William was probably named after his father William.

McQuown is how one of my ancestors surname was spelled. Is this the same as McEwen/MacEwen?
Just wondering because I find this fascinating.

I am trying to find the decedents of William McEwan and Catherine Bannon.
I believe he came from Scotland to New York about 1865. They were married in New York City, and had eight kids in New York, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Most of them ended up in Chicago with their mother.
The youngest, Joseph Edward McEwan is my grandfather. I'm looking for grandkids and great-grandkids of his siblings.
by Ian Munro (Rankin's Springs, NSW.Australia.)
My great grandmother was Sarah McEwan and she was born at Lochgilphead on Loch Fyne, Scotland. Lochgilphead is across the Loch from Otter Ferry.
She married John Munro, my great grandfather. We was from Castleton on Loch Fyne. They emigrated to Australia in 1878 on board the Álice Platt'.
Both John and Sarah spoke Gaelic. They settled at Bundalong in Victoria, Australia.

by Kathleen Powel (Port Saint Lucie, Florida)
Just curious, my step Uncle went to Scotland some years ago a met a few MacEwens, which was great, and he visited the remaining ruins of the MacEwen Castle. My grandfather was a MacEwen, and we traced our ancestry back, but not far enough.
Would like to know if there are other MacEwens living in Florida or New Jersey or North Carolina or Pennsylvania. It would get nice to talk to other MacEwens.

Travel is fun in the Northern summer... but don't neglect the Southern Hemisphere at this time of year.
Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.
Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...
Whether you're taking a road trip close to home or traveling abroad...
Whether it's summer or winter in your part of the world...
the way you pack can make it all more pleasurable.
