The Genealogy Event was borne from an interest and passion in providing learning and connecting opportunities for those interested in genealogy and DNA.
introducing genealogy & dna events
The Genealogy Event first launched October 26th & 27th 2012 in New York City offering a variety of concurrent short talks, one on one consults as well as a range of exhibitor booths. Since that time the event has evolved to include different formats, venues and locations. In 2016, The Genealogy Event was held in Adare, Ireland on September 2 & 3 at the Woodlands House Hotel; DNADox, the beginner DNA bootcamp took place October 1, 2016. In 2017, The Genealogy Event took place September 1 & 2 2017 in Adare, Ireland.
The most recent The Genealogy Event took place August 30 to September 1 in Adare, Ireland and on October 13 at Pier A, Battery Park in New York City.
In November 2017, The Genealogy Event (along with its founder Bridget Bray) joined IrishCentral (via parent company Irish Studio). IrishCentral is the largest online media site to reach the Irish global community, with over 3.5 million monthly unique visitors to the site and over 650K Facebook followers. The synergies between IrishCentral's readership interest in genealogy and The Genealogy Event made for a next step in the event's evolution.
