A great tribute, watched this last night.

The full episode can now be viewed online at the CBC in case anyone missed the broadcast:

http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/doczone/

I highly recommend watching as it gives our project and others like it special relevance by documenting the hardships and sacrifices folks made just to get here.

A nice write up about the program in today's Ottawa Citizen.

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/After+starvation+shipwreck+Irish+families+began+their+lives/4453655/story.html

It mentions there is a BBC version of the story as well called Ice Emigrants that aired in April in the UK:

I'll try and find a video link.

For The Crawford family I suggest :

1. the web site: http://members.tripod.com/crawford family/1.htm
2. The book; History of the counties of Argenteuil, Precott from the earliest settlement to the present, 1896, Cyrus Thomas, 1896, p. 406-407. Note : this book is online


Note: The email of Gary Crawford is not correct. Please send the correction.

Thank you Fergus, this is mostly the same data I already have, I made a family tree on-line for my friend, it is at this time in French and I will make later the translation.

We try to make the connection with James Lyons, may be Lilian Joy.

The only information n that I have in my St. Columban records concerning the Collins family is:-

Timothy Collins was married to Elizabeth Brown and had the following children:-

Johanna Collins who was born in St. Columban November 12 1842 but died at only 16 years old on April 27th 1859

Michael Collins born in St. Columban on August 9th 1848

Jeremiah Collins born March 13 1850 and was twin to Patrick Collins. Who of course was born on the same day – March 13th 1850 – Unfortunately Patrick Collins passed away on March 20th 1850 at only 7 days old.

Thomas Collins who was born in St. Columban on August 12th 1852

Other Collins in the record but without any connection made to Timothy etc. include:-

 I also have a Catherine Collins that was married to Samuel Sexton.

I have a Frank Collins married to Elizabeth Slattery

I have a Jane Collins married to Denis Donovan

And another Jane, (in some records listed as Johanna Collins) married to James O’Leary

***** I have a Margaret Collins married to a Matthew O’Leary

And a Mary Collins married to a John Donon (maybe Donovan)

****** Also if you go our Photo Gallery # 11 on our main site under photos, you will see some interesting information about Timothy Collins who lived to about 111 years old !
