Irish DNA project

Participating in the Irish DNA project gives an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your research of your family tree. We will also discover which family trees are related.

If you have taken an DNA test and you have Irish ancestors or are Irish please join this DNA group to learn more about your DNA and ancestors.

  • In order to participate it is required to upload the DNA results to Geni.

We also have a Facebook group for Geni users who have taken a dna test, you will need to upload the raw data to Genesis Gedmatch.com for the tool to work, this tool finds dna matches between members in the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/genidnamatchfinder/

What can you do here?

By joining this project you can get in touch with other members who have Irish DNA and discuss outcomes and matches, and find people who are researching the same surnames
