I am interested in the use of DNA (yDNA, autosomal and mtDNA) to help find family roots and connections. I am administrator of two projects: O’Shea Surname yDNA Project and the Ireland Heritage yDNA Project. Both these projects use the Family Tree DNA testing company in the USA. In 2009, I wrote an article on yDNA testing “Use of DNA in Irish Genealogical Research” for the Irish Genealogical Society International Journal. I also wrote an article on DNA testing for the Senior Times entitled: Beginner’s Guide to DNA testing.
The International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG), is a non-profit society that is not affiliated with any commercial for-profit company, individual, or other such entities. It operates a message board for genetic genealogy at Yahoo.
