I am looking for my ancestry.

Here is what I know.

My father is William Francis Sweeney, born in Canada to parents-George Francis Sweeney(born June 26,1900, in Cork county Irerland) and Florence May Barnes (Born Oct 9,1908 in Oxford, England).
George Fancis Sweeney's Father was Frank Francis Sweeney Of Cork County Ireland.
I know Frank Francis Sweeney was in Cork county in 1900. He and his wife Ada(maiden name unknown),and son George Francis, Imigrated to Canada in 1912.

Who can I seek to help me find my Sweeney bloodline from this point back.

My name is Reva Sweeney and I have the following info on my roots.
James Sweeney born Ireland Jan1.,1837 (Parents and brothers and sister's unknown at present)Died June 14 1912, in New Aberdeen, Cape Breton Nova Scotia, Canada. He married Ellen Maloney born June 12, 1848, birthplace unknown?Nova Scotia, died 1913, in New Aberdeen, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

They had seven children that I can find:
Jane born 1869(app.died young)
Michael born Sept.28, 1970, married Rebecka(Rebecca)Colter Rines onFebruary 9, 1898-St.Bernard's Church, Enfield, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Mary E. born 1875

Martin born April 13, 1878(1877?)married Catherine MacIntyre on Nov. 29, 1916 in Lingan, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Richard born Sept.22, 1880,married Mary(Mamie) Maloney from Whitley Bay, Newfoundland-they moved to Summer St., West Lynn, Mass., USA, and supposedly had no children.

Anastasia born 1880(app.died young-buried St. Francis Xavier R.C. Cemetary-Chapel Hill, Maitland, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Rosalie born Nov. 1888

My question to anyone out their is if any of this info. looks familiar please get in touch with me.

I am trying to find out how James Sweeney immigrated to Canada from Ireland. The story passed down thru the family is this: "James had a argument with his father and punch him in the face, his father fell down an embankment and thinking he killed his father, is said to have hopped on a ship that very day. We were also told that he went to the USA (Boston)first and then came to Nova Scotia-but we have no knowledge of this."

I would like to know if he had any brothers or sisters and his parents names.

Some of the above generation are living in New York State, Boston area, Florida, Canadian Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
