Genetic Genealogy Ireland presentation: The genetic identification of the 1916 Cork Rebel, Thomas Kent

Take a 99 year old body buried in a shallow grave in rainy Cork Ireland. Find that conventional CSI type genetic testing, known in North America as CODIS marker testing, doesn't work. Sad. Then apply the combined power of research grade investigation. The result: identification of the person to a probability better than one in the whole human population of the earth who ever lived. Impressive.

Jens Carlsson explains the project in this YouTube video from Genetic Genealogy Ireland 2016.
