ABOUT THIS SPEAKER

More about

Veronica

Veronica describes herself as an enthusiastic and obsessed researcher with a special interest in genetic genealogy. She holds a Bachelor of Management and Human Resources degree and worked as an Executive Director in public administration for many years, focussed on human resource and change management.

Researching her own family history started in earnest in 2006 and Veronica completed the Certificate in Genealogical Research at the Society of Australian Genealogists (SAG). To help increase her own knowledge, Veronica was instrumental in establishing the SAG DNA Research Group in 2015. Veronica remained the convenor of the group for nearly 6 years and continues to be an active volunteer for the society presenting sessions on both general genealogy and DNA research.

Veronica volunteers her time in other activities, including:

  • as an Ambassador and Joint Project Leader for the Australia Project at Wikitree.com
  • on the Executive Committee of the ‘Cassidy Clan’, presenting DNA sessions at Clan Gatherings in Fermanagh, Ireland
  • helping others to resolve their DNA mysteries in particular, her DNA matches, SAG and Cassidy Clan members and as an adoption angel at Wikitree
  • as an FamilyTreeDNA Project Administrator for several projects including the Cassidy, Coat and Courtney surnames, Brittons of Ireland and locational projects for Moyriesk and Rathclooney in County Clare and County Wexford.

Veronica uses social media and blogs to share the stories of her family. Known as ‘genemonkey’, you can read more about her research projects at www.genemonkey.com.
