UCD's long term course in genealogy run by Sean Murphy finished up this year. He's obviously still working as a genealogist, just no longer teaching there.

A few alumni decided to have a few drinks for him on Friday 16th June in McDaids on Harry St from 7pm onwards.
Hoping to make contact with his former students - there must be a lot over 25 years.

Northern Ireland Family History Society is having its first genealogy fair next Saturday in Ballymena.

Anyone thinking of going?

I see Sean's still spreading the word - he's teaching an eight week course in the NLI http://www.nli.ie/en/genealogy_events.aspx

Yes - it was very successful last time around and they had to turned people away, so I'm not surprised the NLI is giving him another go.

I did this course last year - highly recommend it to anyone thinking of tracing their roots. My family and my wife's have loved the info I've recovered over the past year. I'm having to provide them with regular updates or I start getting emails or calls!

With regards to BTOP DNA lectures, several of them can be watched on the 'Genetic Genealogy Ireland' Facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/gene...ealogyireland/

Presentations which will contain data from unpublished academic studies (eg. Irish DNA atlas presentation on Sunday) won't be streamed. One interesting caveat from a historic point from Bradley (TCD) presentation yesterday is that we now have our first Mesolithic (Hunter/gather) ancient DNA genome from Ireland, it's unpublished so I imagine there will be a paper in the next year or so.

Paddy Waldron of the Clare Roots Society will talk about getting the most from your autosomal DNA results, something we discuss a lot on the forum!
