Discovering Your Irish Heritage & Family Tree (Ep. 31) [Re-run]

With the latest advances in genealogy, tracing your family tree could bring up a few surprises. Commercial DNA analysis is a great tool for someone who wants to trace his family or to discover his Irish heritage.

If you’re interested in learning how to use these tools to discover your Irish heritage, then listen to this rebroadcast of the 31st Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast episode, in which Eoin talks to Michael Carragher (president of the Irish Family History Forum of Long Island and New York City) about how DNA testing can help you pin-point certain clans or groups of very common surnames such as Murphy and Kelly.

This re-run of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast, episode 31 – in the English language, also focuses on other interesting topics such as heartbreaking or surprising stories you may discover while finding your Irish heritage, finding local genealogy organizations, the three types of DNA testing (Autosomal, Y chromosome and Mitochondrial) and much more.
