Precis of the next lectureResearch your Clan using DNA and Documentary Records

Ireland has a rich history of clans/septs, extending back almost 2000 years. There has been renewed interest in Clan research due to the advent of digitisation and the increasing online accessibility of ancient texts and their translations, as well as the availability of Y-DNA testing and the growth in Surname DNA Projects. This talk explores how anyone can use DNA and online texts to research their own particular Irish Clan.
