SEATTLE - March 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Irish national and geneticist Tyrone Bowes is coming to Seattle on Thurs., March 13 to shed light on ancestral DNA testing used to pinpoint where a person’s ancestors lived and to talk about genealogy.

The event will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 8208 18th Ave NE (Lower level Social Hall), in Seattle from 6 to 9 p.m.

Bowes will discuss using commercial ancestral DNA testing to pinpoint a person’s ancestry. Genetic genealogy is the application of genetics to traditional genealogy and involves the use of genealogic DNA testing to determine the level and type of the genetic relationship between individuals.

A native of Dublin, workshop presenter Dr. Tyrone Bowes is a Biotechnologist with a Ph.D. in Neuroimmunology. He regularly presents workshops on using commercial ancestral DNA testing and has also written articles on ancestral DNA testing for genealogical magazines and scientific journals. He is available for media interviews March 12-18.

The event is part of several festivities associated with the 2014 Irish Week Celebration sponsored by the Irish Heritage Club of Seattle. The club is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious organization that promotes Irish cultural activities in the greater Seattle and Puget Sound areas, especially activities that promote the Irish language, Irish music, Irish dancing, Irish history, Gaelic games, and cultural exchanges between the Puget Sound area and Ireland.
