Tracing Your Ancestors

Speaker: Paddy Waldron

Paddy Waldron will present a guide to tracing your Clare ancestors using oral, documentary and genetic evidence. His talk will include live demonstrations of how to use simple genealogy software to record your known family history and how to use online local resources and national databases of birth, marriage and death records (civil and church) and census returns to fill the gaps.

He will conclude with a demonstration of the latest DNA-based technology to explore Clare surname origins (Y-DNA) and find long-lost cousins (autosomal DNA).  DNA kits will be available on the night for anyone interested in exploring the new technology.
