Redefining Identity: The Unseen Celtic Roots of my Ancestry Unveiled by iGENEA DNA Test

Family name Blum

An iGENEA DNA test unravels unexpected ancestral origins of the narrator, linking their family name, Blum, to the Celtic tribes of Ireland and Scotland. The newfound knowledge causes a shift in their perception of self-identity and fosters a deeper connection to their ancestors.

The DNA test I undertook at iGENEA unveiled a compelling narrative. For years, I had understood the Blums as eastern European immigrants, born out of a modest heritage and simplistic lifestyle. The results, however, told a different story altogether. As it turns out, my Blum ancestors were originally from the Celtic tribes of Ireland and Scotland. Stunned by this unexpected revelation, I could hardly believe that our family's roots stretched so deep into northern Europe.

This new insight revealed a lineage that was not just rich in cultural diversity and historical depth, but also aligned with and deepened my interest in Celtic history. After all these years of feeling peripheral to Celtic culture, I was suddenly deeply connected to it. I knew I was a Blum, but never did I suspect our family tree to be rooted in the Celtic tribes.

Not only did it challenge my understanding of my family roots, but it also caused me to rethink my personal identity. I found myself reimagining my ancestry, visualising Celtic warriors and folk artists among my forebears. The paradigmatic shift in my familial background brought out latent sentiments of pride and newfound appreciation for my historical origin.

Incorporating this new understanding, I began researching about Celtic history and Irish and Scottish ways of life in detail. I soaked up everything from their ancient culture and traditions, their struggles, triumphs, and their contributions to the world. Moreover, I noticed a significant change in my outlook towards my heritage and in the way I perceived my identity. I felt more connected to my Ivan ancestors, understanding our shared DNA as the glue that binds us together across centuries.

The paramount insights from this DNA test have not only made me more knowledgeable about my ancestors, but also helped me gain a deeper understanding of myself. My sense of belonging has been reshaped, and my identity redefined. I am a Blum, with a heritage stretching back to the Celtic tribes of northern Europe. This self-understanding not only feels liberating in its profundity, but also fortifies my connection to my ancestors, and my place in the larger tapestry of human history.
