Need Help from a Statistician

I'd appreciate it if a person with a strong statistical background could heip out our YDNA surname project by running a Galton-Watson stochastic process (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galton–Watson_process) with the following assumptions:

Scenario 1: Three male children in first generation; probability of paternal line survival after 20, 25 and 30 generations.
Scenario 2: Six male children in first generation: probabilty of paternal line survival after 18, 24, 28 and 32 generations

Thanks very much; if there are questions please email me at jbarry6899@me.com
