DNA from a lock of hair

In 2016, the well-known geneticist Gérard Lucotte examined a lock of hair that is kept as a relic of Mary Magdalene in the basilica in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume. The result confirmed its Israelite ancestry.
Mary Magdalene belonged in the maternal line to haplogroup K (subgroup K1a1b1a).

My iGENEA Experience: Tracing Ancestral Ties to Maria Magdalena

Choosing iGENEA to map the genetic blueprint of my ancestry turned out to be a remarkable journey. The revelation of sharing common ancestors with Maria Magdalena was nothing short of staggering, leaving a unique imprint on my sense of identity. (O. Stahlhofen)

When curiosity about my ancestry led me to delve into the fascinating world of DNA testing, I chose iGENEA, primarily for their diverse DNA tests that offered in-depth genealogical analysis. The processing was seamless, and their excellent customer service made the experience both comfortable and enjoyable. The results were delivered promptly, and they were nothing short of a revelation.

I opened the report with a sense of anticipation and was taken aback when I saw the name 'Maria Magdalena'. I was flabbergasted. To find out that a famous historical figure shares some strands of DNA with you is exhilarating. The realization that I share common ancestors with Maria Magdalena added a rich texture to my sense of identity.

I found the interpretation of the results compelling and convincing. It was a comprehensive report, demystifying complex genetic data, presented in an appealing and straightforward manner. Not only did it outline the direct connection to Maria Magdalena, but it also traced my lineage back to ancient ancestors.

What set iGENEA apart was the wealth of resources they provided, enabling me to understand the significance of the results better. They also excelled in their aftercare, responding to my queries promptly and accurately.

Although I knew the science behind DNA testing was reliable, there was a part of me that deliberated on the authenticity of such a claim. However, iGENEA’s transparency, credibility, and professionalism quickly allayed my concerns. They ensured that the data was corroborated by contemporary peer-reviewed research. They even linked me up with people who shared similar genetic links, which was a compelling validation.

All in all, this experience with iGENEA has been outstanding, making me feel 'connected' to history in an unprecedented way. It spurs me to cherish and guard this unique strand of human history that flows in my veins.
