Some census records will provide the year of immigration and whether or not the person has been naturalized. That information can lead you to Ship Arrival records and immigration and naturalization records.

As already noted if they are (or were) Catholic Ancestry added Irish Parish records not long ago --- that is how I found the town (and townland) my Irish ancestors were from.

Since then I've found autosomal DNA matches who are from the same town as my ancestors.
