Descendant of Irish Catholic family from Dunmanway Parish, County Cork. The Collins and many other Dunmanway families, displaced by the "Famine", settled in Ontario, Canada. My great-grandfather, Michael Thomas Collins, was the first Collins of the family born on the North American continent, in 1853. In 1872, Michael Thomas Collins left Canada and settled in Los Angeles, California. By 1885, his entire family had left Ontario and settled into a new life in Los Angeles, California. I have researched the Collins and their relations for nearly forty years, in Ireland, Canada and the United States.
