Flesh & Blood – Genetics meets Genealogy: 1 October

Jim Ryan, publisher of the highly useful Tracing Your Ancestors series of county-focused genealogy books, has advised me of an interesting event organised by BioConnect Ireland.

BioConnect Ireland operates in the life science sector, and will be hosting an afternoon seminar called Flesh and Blood – Genetics meets Genealogy on Tuesday 1st October at the Davenport Hotel in Dublin 2.

Jim is chairman of BioConnect Ireland and warns that the majority of the audience will be approaching the subjects from the biotech and business viewpoint. However, if you take a quick gander at the speakers and the themes of their talks, you won't let that worry you. The lecture titles suggest family historians will be very comfortable!

The seminar starts and 2:30pm and finishes at 6:00pm. Find out more on the Biotech website here.
