About us

The Biggins DNA Project at Family Tree DNA encourages researchers to find their common heritage through sharing of information and DNA testing. It appears that the majority of the Biggins DNA participants have ancestors from Ireland. However, the name appears in other countries, especially England. And many ancestors have emigrated to Australia, Canada, Scotland, and the United States. All spelling variations are welcome. If you believe that you descended from a Biggins or a variant of the surname, consider joining our project. If your surname is missing from our list of variants, please let the project administrator know and we will be glad to add it. The surname Little is an Anglicization of Biggins/Beggan/Beagan, which comes from the irish "beag" which means "small."
