Paul was married to Shirley for forty-eight years until she entered her eternal reward on Christmas 2005. They are the proud parents of twelve children and grandparents of twenty-six grandchildren.

Dr. Byrne and his colleagues recently held a conference at the Vatican on this very subject.  Video DVDs of the conference are available by mailing a request to the International Foundation for Genetic Research.  See address below.

Dr. Byrne spends many spare waking moments in defense of those unable to communicate on their own behalf. He is available for speaking engagements and radio and television interviews at a very minimal, or donations only, cost to audiences and organizations around the country. This is a topic that the general public must continuously be made aware of before it happens to them.

To make arrangements for an interview with Dr. Byrne or to have him as a speaker at your event please send a request by using the contact button at the top right corner of this page.  Thank you.
