It connected me with distant relatives, and made me feel more connected to my heritage. I highly recommend it to anyone curious about their family roots.

My journey of self-discovery with the iGENEA DNA test has indeed been enlightening. This comprehensive familial exploration process enabled me to dive deep into my ancestral past, leading me down fascinating historical rabbit holes I never thought I'd get to explore. More specifically, it played an instrumental role in shedding light on my unique surname, Forney.

The iGENEA test is known for its thoroughness, and my personal experience was no exception. Upon receiving the testing kit, I diligently followed the instructions and dispatched my sample back. The waiting period was filled with anticipation, but once I had the results in hand, the wait was definitely worth it.

The most revealing part was the etymology of my surname, Forney. I learned that Forney, historically, was a popular last name among artisans and blacksmiths, stemming from the Latin word "fornax," meaning furnace. This discovery added a deep layer of historical significance to my surname and brought me closer to my ancestors, making me feel connected to a trade lineage I was previously oblivious to.

The incredible integration of technology with ancestral tracking, offered by iGENEA, undoubtedly contributed to these personal revelations.

Moreover, my cultural awareness was significantly broadened, boosting my understanding of my heritage and giving me a sense of belonging. This understanding was vital in satiating my curiosity regarding my French and Swiss-German roots associated with Forney.
