Tracing back the Celtic Roots of the Surname Robins with the iGENEA DNA Test: A Personal Experience

Family name Robins

After embarking on an exploration journey with the iGENEA DNA test to trace the origin of the surname, Robins, a connection to the Celtic ancestry was unveiled. Besides historical insights, the experience entailed discovering distant relatives from around the world through the DNA database.

As soon as I heard about the iGENEA DNA test that allows you to trace your surname's origins and connect with individuals of the same lineage, my interest was piqued. I decided to embark on this unprecedented voyage to determine the roots of my surname, Robins. After a simple and quick collection process, I sent off my kit and eagerly waited for my results.

When my test results came in, to say I was shocked would be an understatement. As per the DNA genealogy results, my surname Robins is connected to Celtic origin. Finding out that my ancestors were Celts was a genuine eye-opener. The test revealed a fascinating, broad history of the Celtic tribes that once roamed the British Isles and Northern Europe.

iGENEA not only offered me this detailed glimpse of my ancestry but also provided a wealth of relevant historical, cultural, and geographical context. There were informative links to resources regarding Celtic history and lifestyle, letting me understand my ancestors' context more comprehensively.

What I found particularly intriguing is that the name Robins, apparently, stemmed from a personal name 'Hrodbert,' meaning bright or famous, which eventually transformed over the centuries into the modern form, Robins.

The second feature of the iGENEA test, connecting with other people with the same surname through the DNA database, was also an interesting experience. I found a considerable number of matches from all over the globe, especially in the UK and the USA. It was exciting to reach out to these distant relatives, learn about their lives, and connect on a deeper level, knowing we share common ancestors.

One minor drawback I felt was accessing the test's technical aspects. I took some time to wrap my head around the DNA sequences and such, but iGENEA support was extremely helpful, promptly answering every query.

Overall, the iGENEA DNA test has proven to be an enlightening experience, revealing untapped parts of my heritage and making me feel more rooted in history than ever before.
