About us

We are now using the tail end of this webpage as a repository for miscellaneous Bruce data lists.

Regrouping, and Phylogenetic Trees

The latest round of grouping was performed on 12th February 2018
See our Results page for the latest trees.
Grouping is a ongoing task that we need to review whenever a new member joins.
Note that the group prefix numbers we use are just arbitrary identifiers and have no other meaning.

Bruce Population Frequency
See the bottom of the Results page for an analysis of the global Bruce surname population and it's distribution around the world.


Privacy Settings

Please ensure that your Privacy Settings allow for other project members to see your DNA results.

This is especially true for new members, because the default is currently for them to be hidden.

If you need more detail refer to this blog http://dna-explained.com/2015/07/27/family-tree-dna-new-privacy-settings/


Activity Feed and myGroups

FTDNA have phased in their new user interface called myGroups.
It has a facebook-style Activity Feed which will hopefully provide a good communication forum for our members.
The 4 web pages that are provided for our project/admin use, are now found tucked away under the About tab.
Our main project page is under About and then Background.

Members are encouraged to join their appropriate Y-DNA haplogroup (or subclade) projects
Look to see if your terminal SNP is listed in the available projects.
Just for example, all our R-L21 members are encouraged to join the R-L21 project.
Some of these haplogroup projects are doing great works.


New members
We are now seeing more 'transfer' tests coming over from other testing companies, and finally a few Big-Y results.
Refer to the statistics section at the end of the main page to see a count of these.
Some transferred tests do not show up in the standard STRs reports, but their grouping can be inferred from their terminal SNPs. If this applies to you, please contact us to discuss some strategies for getting your test included in the standard STR reports.

We also have about 60 or so associate members (these being non-Bruce tests and even a few non-male tests).
Some of the non-Bruce YDNA tests are potential NPEs, and some are exploring their relatedness in pre-surname times.


Coupon offers, upgrades, etc
Always check to see if any vouchers are available that may be specific to your needs.
Always purchase tests or upgrades via our project pages, to ensure you get any applicable project discounts.
