The Ewing Family Archive at ACPL, Fort Wayne, Indiana

The Allen County Public Library (ACPL) at Fort Wayne, Indiana has accepted the bulk of the records previously kept by the Ewing Family Association at the Cecil County (Md) Historical Society. ACPL makes this material available online through its Genealogy Center Family Files and Resources area.  You may explore the Ewing area at http://www.genealogycenter.info/search_ewing.php.  ACPL will welcome researchers in person who would like to view the original documents including those that may not yet have been indexed or made available on line.

"The Ewing Reading Room"

The site links below have been collected by EFA.  They concern the Ewings who emigrated to America and, in some cases, their ancestors. The cited birth/death dates are those appearing in the linked-to material; these may be different from proven or generally-accepted dates. The links will take you to the Home Page for the Web Site containing information about the ancestor. These Web Sites are organized in a variety of ways. Some provide specific links to the cited ancestor. Others provide general links to genealogical information, e.g. "Genealogy," within which you'll find the cited ancestor. Still others provide links to more-recent generations and you have to use indices or work your way "backwards" to reach the information about the cited ancestor. Bottom line: you may need to creatively surf through the Web Site to find information about the cited ancestor.
