Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2015: lectures go online

Videos of presentations at this year's Genetic Genealogy Ireland (GGI) conference are now starting to be uploaded to GGI's dedicated YouTube channel at .

Over the last three years, the GGI conference has been held in conjunction with the Back To Our Past exhibition in Dublin. It's an extremely popular element of the annual show, attracting DNA enthusiasts and experts from across the globe.

It's organised by genealogist Maurice Gleeson, who was recently voted Genetic Genealogist of the Year 2015 by SurnameDNA Journal, and is sponsored by FamilyTree DNA.

The videos now available on YouTube are

An introduction to this year's DNA lectures at Genetic Genealogy Ireland, with Maurice Gleeson

Building a Family Tree with SNPs, STRs, Named People, with Maurice Gleeson

Surfing the SNP tsunami: NGS for Genetic Genealogists
, with John Cleary

Irish Clans & Irish identity
, with Dr Cathy Swift

I understand there's been some kind of technical difficulty with the videos taken this year, hence the delay in uploading them for public access. This has now been resolved and Maurice tells me the remaining videos will be added in a steady fashion.
