This site welcomes ALL citizens regardless of location who use the name McElwee, MacElwee, McIlwee
or any other spelling of the name. I am searching for Fellow McElwees throughout the planet so I can add to my existing list
from USA, Canada, and Australia.
I will also publish stories
you have about yuour family, regardless of where you are located. I have found it interesting to learn about other McElwees
and their families and lives. Please check the following page for information about our family.
In the near future I will have more information about McElwees from
my family, including the good, bad, and ugly. You will learn about my upbringing in a small coal mining village in North Central
Pennsylvania in the 40s and 50s and some stories that have been handed down from generation to generation that I will post
for your interest and/or amusement.
dear old Da was a story teller, as were his grandfather and great grandfather. I have tried to continue the art be relating
stories, some true some with Literary License; names changed to protect the innocent of guilty.
If you have a good story, true or dressed up, please pass it along
for publication, PLEASE no inappropriate language since this is a family site.
If you have any old photos of McElwee family members anywhere in this great planet please send them as a .jpg of
John "Jack" McElwee
