Back To Our Past announces DNA lecture programme

The schedule of DNA talks for the forthcoming Back To Our Past exhibition at the RDS in Dublin from October 18-19 is now available on the event's website at https://backtoourpast.ie.

There are two days worth of talks, with 12 talks in total, six per day. The one that catches my eye in particular is 'Epigenetics for the Genetic Genealogist' by Katherine Borges, a subject I once tried to get a Horizon documentary commissioned about at the BBC, because it is just soooo damned interesting - nature versus nurture, the eternal debate!

Sadly I won't be able to attend, but there is plenty of fine fare there with speakers including my good chum Michelle Leonard from Glasgow to fly the Scottish flag!

The full programme is at https://backtoourpast.ie/schedules/dublin-dna-lecture-schedule/.

The main stream of genealogy talks will be announced on the event's website on Monday 30th September.
