About us

If your 4 grandparents were born in the same general area in Ireland, please submit your autosomal DNA to this project. By collecting this DNA, we hope to build a database of geographically localised DNA that will give us a "genetic snapshot" of the DNA of Ireland from about 1885 (the average year of birth of the grandparents of adults living today). Results are displayed under the Results tab above. To Join the project, please COPY the text below, and then click on the JOIN button above and follow the instructions. When prompted to give details of the line you are researching, please PASTE the text you have just copied, and fill in the relevant information for each of your 8 great grandparents. You will be allowed to join the project if your 4 grandparents are from the same general area (namely, born roughly within 80km or 50 miles of each other) but we need the information on all 8 of your great grandparents to create a "more localised" subset of people. Thus, altogether we need the details of your 12 ancestors below. So, to recap, you MUST ... - have 4 grandparents from Ireland - they must ALL have been born in the same geographic area (i.e. within 80 km / 50 miles of each other) Now, to start, COPY all the text below ...
