James and Ann are my great-great-great grandparents. My brother and I have recently begun in earnest to search out our family tree. What I am looking for is the date when James immigrated to Canada from Ireland, as well as where in Ireland did he once reside. As far as I have been able to figure out there was also a surname change at the time of immigration or shortly thereafter , as "Kilcollins " can't be found in Ireland. Some records suggest that the original surname might have been "Collins". I was wondering if anybody out there who is familiar with the Kilcollins family might know.
Thanks for whatever help you can provide!
