RE: [milgenire] West Cork Artillery
Thank you very much for your reply to my e-mail.
It is great news that they are going to digitize the attestations ! I think I will take your advice and wait until this proces has been completed.
Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it.

Subject: Re: [milgenire] West Cork ArtilleryWest Cork Artillery was a militia unit. The attestations to the militia are contained in the UK National Archives WO96. These are about to be digitized and I would expect if the practice with other record sets is followed that there will be an index online. Various records have been farmed out to private companies in this way in recent years and if the previous practice is followed the full record will be available for a fee from the private entity.Check out this page:http://www.national archives. gov.uk/catalogue /DisplayCatalogu eDetails. asp?CATID= 13156&CATLN=3&FullDetails= TrueI notice the index is also available on CD fromHowever, since "From June 2010, for approximately 1 year, access to certain pieces will be disrupted and advance ordering of this series will not be possible during this time." and the service of supplying a record from the CD index would presumably have been by manual search with the associated cost, it may be less expensive to simply wait until the digitization is complete.Regards,Donnacha

I am looking for information on George St. Clair de Talma. From his marriage certificate I learned that in 1860 he was a staff sergeant in the West Cork Artillery. His father, Octavius Casar de Talma, was an officer in the French army.
At the time of his marriage to Letitia Elizabeth Daly, George was living in Macroom, county Cork.
Letitia appears in the 1901 census as a widow, so George died before that time. Letitia was born around 1836; I assume George was a few years older than her, as he was a widower when he married her.
Any information about the above mentioned persons or tips on where to look for information will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
