Is kind of common for our ancestors( i mean most of the Oversea Chinese) to combine their last name and first into one word when they first came to foreign country from mainland China in the past.
So, LIMCOLIOC could be a combine word of LIM CO LIOC. If this is the case, *LIM will be your family name.
For surname search:
*Lim, Lin, Lam and Lum are referring as Forest in Chinese word.
