I've only just started looking into my Ewers heritage. I believe John Ewers is my great great grandfather - give or take a great or two!
My father was John Keith Ewers, b. Subiaco, Perth, Western Australia in 1904; d. 1978. He was a well-known writer and did some family research himself for a novel based on the Gippsland fires (Fire on the Wind) as well as his autobiography (Long Enough for a Joke). I've just been contacted by a third cousin Earl Rex Ewers living in Canberra.
I'd love to hear from you if you are still looking into the Ewers family. You have my email, which is probably the best way to communicate. I live in Perth: 27 Chamberlain St, O'Connor WA 6163. My phone is (08) 9331 3409 or 0400 233 763.
I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Trisha
