The iGENEA Projects

In our projects, we highlight very interesting new discoveries in the field of DNA genealogy. We study the origins of famous people and aristocratic families. There are also currently more than 7,000 surname projects in our database.

The Bourbon DNA project. Are you descended from the kings of France and Spain?

Legends exist about children fathered out of wedlock by men from the House of Bourbon. For the first time ever, the opportunity to verify these stories with the help of a DNA test is offered by iGENEA. In the current project, we are looking for other living close relatives of this aristocratic family.
