Hi to all again, thanks to 'Fuzzy Feeling', 'Gillian', 'Salty Brine', 'Elaine Morley' and 'Jenifer Wright'. for your responses to my message posting yesterday. Any suggestions, on how to confirm my suspicions on the change of name, from Isley, Iseley to Collins. The closest match I could come up with was for one of the parents, listed on the birth records, giving the mother's (olim), as Collins. Kind regards, Elaine.
