She is also very big on how genealogy researchers can use DNA to further their research and make other connections to living relatives.
Barb made me aware that there was a Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2013 conference during which Katherine Borges made some presentations specific to DNA and the Irish-American genealogy connection.
So if you have been doing any Irish research you may want to visit the link that follows and see the online videos of the presentations made by Katherine Borges on the Irish-American DNA connection.
Here is the link to Katherine Borges’ presentations:
Scroll down a little on the site and you will see a 54 minute video as well as a 41 minute video of her presentations at the conference.
The lectures were sponsored by FamilyTreeDNA and the International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG).
Barb also provided me with a link to the Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2013 Conference YouTube channel that you can also visit for even a larger number of videos you can view connected to the conference. You can visit this channel at:
For all of you Irish genealogy researchers, this may be an opportunity to see how you can utilize DNA to further advance your own Irish genealogy research.
Thanks to Barb P. for sharing this genetic genealogy information.
