Genetic Genealogy Ireland recordings online at Legacy

A collection of 15 lectures recorded at last year's Genetic Genealogy Ireland conferences in Belfast and Dublin are now available to view online in the Legacy Family Tree Webinar Library.

The presentations feature top international genetic genealogists on the latest developments in genetic genealogy with a special focus on their application to Irish genealogy.

They include:
  • Using GenomeMate Pro & other tools, with Michelle Leonard
  • Irish genealogies & DNA: Back into the mythological past, with Bart Jaski
  • Exploring new y-DNA horizons with Big Y-700, with Iaian McDonald
  • Irish genealogy 'Down Under', with Michelle Patient

  • The tools at DNAgedcom & Genetic.Family, with Rob Warthen & John Collins
  • Managing your DNA matches, with Donna Rutherford

  • Do you have the DNA of a Scottish clan? with Alasdair Macdonald
  • Canadian Casualty Identification Program - Using databases to connect families to their lost soldiers, with Mags Gaulden
The annual two- or three-day Genetic Genealogy Ireland conference (GGI) has been running since 2013 in Dublin. Hosted by Maurice Gleeson, it consists of two- or three-days of DNA lectures from leading genetic genealogists in Ireland, the UK and the rest of the world. In 2018, a second GGI series was started in Belfast.

Up to now, video recordings from GGI have been made available free of charge on You Tube (you can access the 2013-2018 GGI videos here). The move to the Legacy Family Tree Webinar platform comes with a price tag, albeit a reasonable one. Annual membership costs US$49.95, and provides access not only to the GGI lectures, but all recorded webinars in the Legacy FTW Library.
