  • Hi

    Thank you for your message.

    We are working with people in Ireland to build up a better DNA atlas of each parish and area. This is a project that we have just undertaken and we are now searching for people in Ireland who have at least 8 great grandparents from one local area in order to map the DNA of Ireland and its people. Our partner is 23andme.

     This project will take time to develop and map. We will post the results on our site (without names etc) so that you can see the DNA make up of particular areas in Ireland.  

    This will take some time (12-18 months). I would wait a while until we have mapped parts of Ireland and you can see the kind of data available.

     Again thank you for your interest and feedback.

    Kind regards,

    Genealogy support
