Richard E. Towey (1928 to 2017), Clan Genealogist 2001 to 2012 and his sister Janet Towey Mann (1932 – 2011), Clan Secretary 2004 to 2010, obtained hard copy documents onsite from 1985 to 2010 during many visits to Ballaghaderreen, Dublin and to Great Britain as well as Salt Lake City, St Paul, MN and numerous other cities in the United States.  Using these documents they compiled this family tree database for 1,700 Toweys, including those with variant spellings and their descendants.

If need be, contact their brother William Towey, Clan Webmaster 2010 to 2017 at wtowey5953@aol.com.   He is not a Genealogist but has access to Dick’s and Janet’s computerized genealogy records, but not the hard copy documents they collected.
