Genetic Genealogy Ireland returns to Dublin's BTOP

With only three months to go before Back To Our Past 2014 kicks off in Dublin (17–19 October), details of what's in store are starting to be revealed.

First out of the blocks is news that the Genetic Genealogy Ireland (GGI) conference will be returning. It follows a very successful launch at last year's event and will once again see three days of DNA lectures running in parallel with the main genealogy lecture programmes. As previously, the 2014 GGI programme will be sponsored by FamilyTreeDNA and organised by volunteers from ISOGG.

There will be seven lectures presented each day. The full line-up of speakers isn't yet confirmed but you'll find more detail and a provisional list of topics on the GGI website.

This will be the fifth year of Back To Our Past and it will again be held in the RDS Industries Hall in Ballsbridge as part of the Over 50s Show.
