About us

The standard FTDNA reports for STRs and SNPs can be seen under the DNA Results tab at top left.

Phylogenetic (TMRCA) Trees

These trees show the Time to Most Recent Common male Ancestor of our members.
Branch lengths show the relative TMRCA between members, and between groups of members.

McGee's Y-111 tool was used, with FTDNA mutation rates, Hybid model, 75% probability.
That TMRCA data was then passed through Kitsch to build the probable tree, and then graphed using MEGA11.

Bruce surname frequency and populations

This data was sourced about 2019 from...
Top 10 Bruce frequencies by Country:
