About us

January 2021 Update - We have 408 YDNA tests which form 159 Distinct Family Groups an Increase of 3 since 2021.
Since 2019 - New Members who now test are more likely to find a match with a Cluster already formed than to start their own distinct Cluster.
Many new tests find matches with groups of men they did not know before.

Earliest Proven Ancestors in ENGLAND come from the following Counties: Bedfordshire, Derbyshire, Devon, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Hereford, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, North East,  Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Suffolk & Yorkshire

YDNA tests are urgently needed so we can locate lost family links to Ancestors that migrated all over the World.

BROOKS Families resident in the UK are looking for genetic cousins within the BRITISH ISLES.

The project is made up of all people carrying the Surname today whether having the family name passed down through many Generations or carrying the Surname via Adoption or other Non Paternal Event.

The GOLD Standard for YDNA testing is having a 111 marker YDNA test combined with Family Finder and BIGY.
STR Markers up to 111 Markers show matches up to a mutation Rate of -10.
WE HAVE CLUSTERS who vary their mutations from 0 and -18 [Via BIGY we find they all share a Common Ancestor within the last 600 Years].
So for some Clusters BIGY is the only test that can can link you together and we recommend all men do this test to solve further mystery's.

We look forward to Welcoming all new Members to the Project from any region anywhere in the World.

*We have a very high return rate and only had 7 tests not returned since 2003.

We have collected 908 Distinct BROOKS Family trees and these can be searched at: Brooks Family History - Please test your BROOKS Male YDNA and add your family to our database.
