About me

Introduction Over many years, two cousins - one in Canada and one in the U.S. - collected a large amount of data about their ancestors, the McElreas. The name is not common, even when spelling variants are taken into account, and each branch seems to lead back to a small area of County Tyrone, Ireland. Eventually, we decided to find out if and how these families are connected, which led to the McElrea One-Name Genealogical Study, registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies. We have combined our data and continue to collect more wherever we find it. What we have collected can be found here:
