new publication

Our treasurer, Patrick Redmond, has published a book entitled "From Adam and Eve to the Present: A Human Journey".  He participated in the IBM genographic study, which analyzed the Y-chromosome and the mtDNA of some 200,000 people to trace everyone back to single parents, called Adam and Eve.  He complemented the analysis he was given with historical and other information to unveil a fascinating history of the origins of the Irish and others with a similar Haplogroup back to Adam.  The book can be purchased from the author or from Amazon.
