Genetic Genealogy Ireland at BTOP: lecture line-up

Ireland's only major annual genealogy get-together, Back To Our Past, is now just six weeks away and the provisional line-up of DNA lectures has been revealed today.

The DNA lecture stream forms Genetic Genealogy Ireland (GGI), a conference as much for DNA enthusiasts as for beginners, that has come to form an integral part of BTOP. Twenty lectures will be presented on the half-hour over the three days of the show, and the line-up features several internationally recognised DNA experts. The theme for this year's GGI is 'Who are the Irish?'.

While BTOP has a daily admission price of €10 (€5 if booked by 1 September, see Advance Ticket offer), the lectures themselves are free to attend once you are inside the Hall.

A traditional genealogy lecture programme will also run during BTOP. Details have yet to be announced.

BTOP details:

Friday 9 October Noon to 6:30pm
Saturday 10 October 11am to 6:30pm
Sunday 11 October 11am to 6:30pm.
(GGI lectures start each day 30minutes after doors open; the last GGI lecture on each day starts at 5:30pm.)

Serpentine Hall, RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
