Sneak Preview of GGI2019 Dublin

October will be a busy month for genetic genealogy! We have GGI2019 Dublin on 18-19th Oct and then a week later we have the first ever RootsTech conference in London (24-26th Oct). Many people are killing two birds with the one stone and attending both of them. So if you want to come, start planning now. You can still get cheap admission to RootsTech via their special promotional price of £49 (about $62) - the conference schedule is here. And as always, Genetic Genealogy Ireland is completely free - you just walk in and enjoy.

This year's line-up at Genetic Genealogy Ireland has a very international flavour with lots of new speakers who have never spoken in Dublin before. We have representation from Canada, Australia, Newfoundland, the Netherlands, the US, and Ukraine. They will all get a very big Irish welcome and we can guarantee the usual exceptional social activities.

Here is a draft final outline of the DNA Lecture schedule detailing the speakers and the titles of their talks. The science of genetic genealogy is maturing nicely and this is reflected in the wide variety of different topics.

The final schedule (with descriptions of each talk) will be published shortly. And keep an eye out for Speaker Profiles for the new presenters in the run up to this year's conference.
