Before going out and discovering the World, we should be trying to figure ourselves out, right? What makes us tick? What drives us forward? Why are we inclined to follow certain paths but not others?
Most of these questions can be answered by looking back at our family tree and trying to discover our heritage.
Wherever this travel may take us, we’ll know more about our ancestors, our family, and ourselves – of course. You’ll be surprised by how far genealogy has gotten to. Commercial DNA analysis is a certainty for the present and people are taking advantage of these resources to find out their family’s history and, why not, their Irish heritage.
In this rebroadcast of the 31st Bitesize Irish Gaelic podcast episode you can listen to a very interesting discussion between Eoin and Michael Carragher from the Irish Family History Forum of Long Island and New York City. Find out how discovering stories from your family’s past can be heartbreaking or surprising and how DNA tests can help you discover your Irish heritage.
This is a re-run of the 31st Bitesize Irish Gaelic podcast episode in the English language.
