Sometimes a second pair of eyes can spot something that I may have missed. I have tried findmypast and exactly as you said the records I purchased I had no way of telling if the Michael Connor/O'Connor was correct. Same thing with nationalarchives.gov.uk I paid for records and same story there. I feel my best bet is my grandfathers birth cert born 1880 that would at least give me an address. If he had been in WW1 also there would have been a record on Ancestry.Com. He may not have signed up in Galway it could have been anywhere in Ireland or for that matter England.
Thank you so much for trying I really do appreciate it.

Date: Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 7:38 PMIn the Military Attestations Index Royal Garrison Artiller 1872-1915just two Michael O'Connor on the website www.irishorigins.Limerick WO96/1401 and Cork St. Finbar's WO96/1322each full record on this particular membership will cost 10 British Pounds!!There are 94 Connor's, Only 1 in Galway a Francis ConnorsI checked www.findmypast.co.uk and the way the military records are set out it would be next to impossible to get the right record again without paying a fortune. There are 376 records - perhaps - for Michael O'Connor. What they do is send you to a pagethat is by alphabet, but you don't necessarily find anyone on that page.I have points that I've already paid for and tried one just to see but can see having used the program before that it would be useless to go further:Boar War 1899-1902Connor, Captn.The Royal Irish Fusiillers (Princess Victoria) AL20 reference no and no further information.There is just one with a full name of Michael John, 4 have the initial M. and 1 a M.O.the balance have no first initial or name!!There were many 1914 records but you note he is deceased by 1900.Sorry Wished I could of done more.
