“Bruce started studying his family tree in high school and can even say he started 
using computers in this hobby as early as 1972,though in a very limited way. His 
areas of research includeScandinavia, British Isles, Canada and 
Colonial America. Since 2011,he has participated in DNA testing and he 
joined CAGGNI in January2013. Bruce has been a user of Reunion for Macintosh 
since at least 1998and has used it to build a fairly large family tree and publish it
online with photos and source citations. He has been CAGGNI’s
Reunion SIG leader since January 2015.”
