GGI2017 lectures now available on YouTube

Last year, we had a great line-up of speakers and topics for GGI2017. The 3-day event (20-22 Oct 2017) had the largest audiences yet, but as the lecture area was in the main hall of the exhibition centre, the sound quality of the recordings of the lectures was less than optimal.

Nevertheless, with a bit of technical massaging, the audio has been manipulated to be as good as it can possibly be and on some of the videos it is reasonably okay (despite the background noise).

The entire collection of GGI2017 videos is now online

All of the videos (15 in total) are going online en masse today (11 Oct 2018) and you can view them on the Genetic Genealogy Ireland YouTube Channel.
