9. Lecture slides

In recent years I have given a series of Powerpoint lectures that draw on and explain different aspects of this Study.  The lectures have evolved as my understanding of yDNA testing has improved and our project has developed.  All were presented as a case-study for other Surname DNA surname projects, some at administrator level: 

- "Administering a large yDNA Surname Project", to the Guild of One-Name Studies DNA seminar, Cheltenham, 9 Feb. 2013;

- "Administering a large Scottish Surname DNA Project, to Who Do You Think You Are Live, Glasgow, 29 Aug. 2014;

- "A Scots-Irish Case Study - The Irwin Surname DNA Project" to "Genetic Genealogy Ireland, 2015" at the "Back to Your Past" event, Dublin, 10 Oct. 2015 (audio version can be found at https://youtu.be/YMcBkz79wQM);

- "Surname Projects - Some Fresh Ideas", to FTDNA's 11th International Conference on Genetic Genealogy, Houston, 15 Nov. 2015;  

- "Lessons from a large yDNA Project", to Who Do You Think You Are Live, Birmingham, 8 April 2016 (audio version at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glsxj5LBzo4);

- "Advanced yDNA testing for Surname Projects", to the Guild of One-Name Studies DNA seminar, Cheltenham, 13 Aug. 2016.

- "Surname DNA Projects - A Holistic approach", to "Genetic Genealogy Ireland, 2017" at the "Back to Your Past" event, Dublin, 22 Oct. 2017.

- "Y-DNA of a Scots-Irish Diaspora", to "Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2018" at the "Back to Your Past" event, Belfast, 16 Feb. 2018 (audio version at https://youtu.be/vvRBkYM1wQE).  This is a longer version of the actual lecture, as explained in the footnote to the first slide.  This version is hopefully a useful learning tool that complements the content of much of this website.

- "GDPR and the Project Administrator", to the 14th International Genetic Genealogy Conference, Houston, 23 March 2019 (see https://gap.familytreedna.com/media/docs/2019/GDPR_and_GAPs.pdf).
