"Using DNA to help the Family Tree Research of your Irish Ancestry"

Back to Our Past in the RDS in October has grown over the years into the world's pre-emient event for showcasing Ireland's past, heritage and traditions, while also providing visitors with a unique opportunity to trace their Irish roots.. all at the same time..all under one roof!

Each day will start off with an overview of the basics of DNA testing and how it can help your genealogical research. This year we welcome two new speakers to this slot - Ann Marie Coghlan from the Cork Genealogical Society and Donna Rutherford, who runs the Facebook group "DNA help for Genealogy". They will join Michelle Leonard who wowed audiences last year with her wonderfully straightforward and easy to understand presentation on how DNA can help your family tree research.
