Irish Roots magazine Gift Packs

Irish Roots, Ireland's only independent genealogy magazine, has a great gift idea for the genealogist in your life (or treat yourself...  go on, you know you deserve it).

It's a Gift Pack of four recent issues of the quarterly magazine, bringing you advice on traditional family history research and genetic genealogy; guidance on finding resources for specific areas of Ireland, and on themed collections in the USA and Australia; details of newly released or enhanced record-sets; news and comment from Irish genealogy and local history groups; as well as Q&As and news of developments relating to Irish genealogy.

In other words, it's a useful and informative read for Irish genealogists of all levels of experience.

Prices start from just €25 (within Ireland). Outside of Ireland, prices are UK £25; USA $30; Canada $38; Australia $40. On the order page, you can click switch currency to find your preferred local currency price.

The prices quoted here include worldwide postage and packing costs.




MyHeritage DNA savings

MyHeritage has a 30% discount on its popular autosomal DNA test for researchers in the USA, Ireland and the UK. (It may also be available elsewhere but I haven't been able to clarify. If you don't live in these areas, click the image right and you'll be taken to the local version of MyHeritage.)

As you can see from the image, the discount reduces the price you pay from $£79 to $£49. What is more, there's no shipping cost if you order two or more tests.

The offer will run until Monday 14 September.
