The September meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society is Saturday, 12 September at 12 noon at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd (at Jackson Drive).

The program is Tom Byrne talking about "My Irish Experience."

Here is the program description from the SDGS Newsletter:

Do you have Irish ancestry? Even if you don’t you will enjoy and learn from a personal account of tracing ancestors in the Emerald Isle.

Learn how he located and made contact with his relatives in Ireland and more about his most enjoyable and rewarding adventure of discovery. See also how this opened up his research to all new possibilities. His methods and inspiration may very well work for you!

His PowerPoint presentation includes music and videos from Ireland and incorporates information from his two earlier books on the Byrne family line from 30 years of research, including DNA analysis.

When not traveling and researching his Irish heritage, Tom Byrne enjoys retirement in Encinitas with his wife of 30 years. He has two grown children. Formerly a software and systems development engineer in the defense electronic industry, he last worked for Lockheed-Martin. He received his undergraduate degree in computer science from Iowa State and MBA from the University of Denver.
