The Potential Health Results Of The Faroe Island DNA Project Might Be Astounding

The islanders of this remote island group have a potential to make ground-breaking strides in their health care system by submitting their DNA to the FarGen project spear-headed by Bogi Eliason, the Programme Director whose work takes him around the world to speak about this special project. He is currently speaking at Bio-World-Asia in Singapore this last week of May.

I first read about this project in this article on Bloomberg originally published in February of this year. The country will be the first to sequence their whole population’s DNA, which may or may not agree with all the resident’s sensibilities.

The Faroe Islands are located almost half way between Scotland and Iceland, and it’s 50,000 residents will most likely take part in the project which will also include genealogical findings as well. Why not set up a Google alert to keep informed about this study and the results?

Create A Unique Keepsake Image They Are Sure To Love

 

 

In my circle of friends (family genealogists who cherish their heirloom photos) there is nothing more precious than a keepsake photo print of an ancestor. As the keeper of the family records and photos I’ve been able to memorialize some of my own favorite pictures printed on canvas. Not too long ago I was able to put a wonderful copy of my grandmother Helen Nordgren Moline on a canvas print that now is displayed near our front door so everyone who comes in or goes out can see her pretty face. The print it special to me because I never got to know her because she passed away before I was born.
