Challenges with Irish Genetic Genealogy


Researching in Irish records can be challenging and brick walls tend to impede our progress beyond the 1800-1830 timepoint. However, DNA testing can be a useful tool to complement Irish research. This talk will explore how to use your DNA results to augment your use of Irish records.

 

This was presented as part of the Unlock the Past - Seattle seminar on September 6, 2018.
