This website presents the history of the Dwyer family of Tipperary, Ireland, and Chateaugay, Middletown and Jamestown, New York, and related families, especially the Hathaway family of Springfield, Illinois.

Family photographs from the 1950s and earlier are mostly from collections of Genevieve Dwyer, Margaret Looby and Katherine Powers. Thanks to these people for gathering them, and for various people over the years for preserving them - most recently, Jamie and Margy Biggs, and Wendy Leahy.

Hathaway family photos from the pre-1950 era have been provided by John Hathaway and the collection received from Esther Hathaway.

Photos from the 1960s and 70s were primarily taken by Robert Dwyer.

The photos are dated and described based on original documentation, where possible.
