Are all people with the Skuce surname related? Are the Skuces from Gloucester related to the Skuces from Oxfordshire or Skuses from Ireland? How about Skews from Cornwall?

A DNA project has been set up for Skuce and variant spellings to use to help answer these sort of questions.
DNA testing is able to determine whether two people share a common ancestor through the male line within modern times which roughly corresponds to the time surnames have been in use.
A webpage has been set up to explain the project and to progressively display testing results and conclusions http://freepages.family.rootsweb.com/~skucedna/index.htmhttp://freepages.family.rootsweb.com/~skucedna/index.htm
