Phylogenetic (TMRCA) Trees...

Showing the TMRCA (Time To Most Recent Common male Ancestor) for all our project members.
TMRCA was calculated using FTDNA mutation rates, 75% probability, and the Hybrid mutation model.
The branch lengths show the relative TMRCA between members, or between groups of members.

For this table I used data from...
Populations: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population
Top 10 Bruce frequencies by Country: http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org
Frequency for the 'rest of the world' is guestimated at 0.5 per million.
The table is sorted by frequency.
Current membership (~120 Bruce) is roughly 1 per 1000 of the global Bruce population.
