Unveiling the 'Collett' Legacy: A Journey into My Roots with iGENEA DNA Test

Family name Collett

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery with the iGENEA DNA test, I traced the roots of my surname 'Collett' back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain, dispelling family tales of French origin, unveiled a surprising Viking heritage, and connected with Colletts across the globe.

My journey with the iGENEA DNA test has been genuinely enlightening and more rewarding than I initially anticipated. The process My process started with curiosity, a quest to know more about the lineage of my surname 'Collett,' its origins, and any possible connections around the globe. Initially, I was a little skeptical about what the test could reveal about my lineage, especially since Collett is not an unusual name. However, within a few weeks of registering and submitting my DNA sample, I embarked on an incredible voyage into the past.

iGENEA provided me with comprehensive reports that opened a new understanding of my family lineage. The results showed that the name 'Collett' can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain, contrary to a family story that suggested a French origin. It was a revelation to learn that my ancestors were likely among the first settlers in Britain following the last Ice Age, an insight that has given me a profound sense of lineage and identity.

Additionally, the test unraveled a surprising percentage of Viking heritage, hinting at a rich and storied past in the tumultuous times of the Viking Age. As a history enthusiast, such findings were thrilling, to say the least. The detailed history, era-specific facts, and interactive elements provided by iGENEA were veritably immersive.

As my understanding of my distant past augmented, the iGENEA database also introduced me to a whole new contemporary sphere. Through the database, I found connections with over thirty individuals carrying the Collett surname, from various geographical locations, including Australia, Canada, and even South Africa. Beyond just plain introductions, we have begun sharing family anecdotes, stories passed down the generation, and photographic remembrances. It's been a fascinating exercise in understanding how vast the branches of a single family tree can extend.

iGENEA, through its DNA test, turned out to be an invaluable resource in uncovering the depth of my roots, unwinding the rich tapestry of my forebears, and connecting with people who share the same surname. It's been a journey of self-discovery that has left me with a greater sense of who I am and where I come from. I encourage everyone interested in familial history and genealogy to undertake it.
