Ewing Family


The Ewing Family Journal (EFJ) is currently published twice a year.  (Through 2014, it was published quarterly.) It provides articles on biographical, genealogical, and historical topics related to Ewing-related families.

In its original series, the Journal was known as "Journal of Clan Ewing".  The title changed to "Ewing Family Journal" as of the February, 2009 issue. When we refer to "the Journal", that includes issues appearing under either name.

Special note.  In some copies of the Journal (and other older EFA files), you will find links to files at Dropbox.com.  These reflect an older filing system, and they may not work for you.   We are working on this problem. 8/31/16

Electronic/Online Access

The EFJ is currently published in electronic (PDF) as well as printed form. Subscriptions are normally part of membership in the Ewing Family Association.

Supporting Materials: Some items appearing in the Journal refer to supporting materials which are too lengthy or too volatile to include in printed copies.

Online Availability of Issues and Articles

Transcriptions of Vols. 1-6 (1994-2000) are, with many thanks to James R. McMichael, available online. In addition, many of the reports and articles from recent volumes have been posted to this web site. For example, all of the articles from the Ewing Surname Y-DNA Project are available online. Other online material from issues of the Journal include reports related to Ewing Family Gatherings and articles on Southwestern Pennsylvania Ewings.

Starting in 2006 with Volume 12, we have begun to provide full text PDF copies of the Journal on a time-delayed basis.  Currently, issues are put online two years after initial publication.  When published, EFA members and other subscribers receive the Journal in hard copy (printed) form or by email PDF files.  Follow this link for Recent Volumes (12 and onward).
