DNA Origins Analysis

Are you a Germanic Tribesman?

Researching Germanic origins

A DNA test by iGENEA provides you with evidence of whether you have Germanic roots. Based on your specific genetic characteristics, we can identify your origins and state from which line the Germanic descent is (paternal, maternal or both lines). In addition, your profile is compared with more than 2,000,000 people in our database. If we find a genetic match, i.e., people with whom you correspond to a certain degree, then you have the opportunity to contact these people and intensify your family research.

The genetic profile of the Germanic Tribes discovered

The Germanic Peoples were an Indo-European people of ancient times who originally came from the northern part of Germany and adjacent regions. The Germanic Peoples spread from there to many regions of Europe. Genetic studies now make it possible for us to distinguish the Germanic Peoples from their neighbouring peoples not only linguistically and culturally, but also on the basis of their DNA.

After many Celtic profiles had already been isolated by comparing more than 2,000 saliva samples, many typical Germanic profiles could also be discovered. In this regard, profiles mainly from the United Kingdom were compared with those from the regions of origin of the Germanic tribes in northern Europe.

From the iGENEA DNA test, I have unraveled the captivating story of my surname 'Grunder.'

As a Grunder, I find myself genetically rooted in West Germanic tribes, specifically those of the early medieval period, with the most marked presence in German-speaking regions, particularly in the Basel-Landschaft region in northern Switzerland.
