    Daughters/Sisters Sharing Phenotypes Over Generations

    In my paternal side, my grandfather's sister is Faelid, my father's sister is Faelid, my sister is Faelid and my daughter is Faelid. I don't know how this could be, since all our wives/mothers look very different. I would not expect daughters to perpetuate a phenotype from male lineage, although all do resemble us as much as we resemble our mothers. Now that I think about it, most of the sons of my maternal grandmother's daughters look similar, for the opposite equivalent. Has anyone else noticed phenotype patterns in their own family?

    The funny thing is I don't think any of the men in my family are Faelid, just Cordeby, with mostly Corded until manhood, when Borreby practically takes over completely. I'm unsure how this could be approximated by Faelid daughters, but the UP spectrum is there on both sides.

    More likely than not, you are simply classifying too many women as "faelid". Women are more rounded than men and "Faelid" is a useless taxon anyway. Even Guenthers examples were a mess, with some being pure Borreby and some almost pure Nordic. Even today, most "Faelid" classifications are simply Nordic + UP.

    Rather than Faelid being the main issue, I'm just impressed that each generation shows females carrying the same traits from my paternal line. I also share many traits with my male cousins in the maternal line. It's a case of daughters taking after fathers and sons taking after mothers, which happens through genetic recombination, or else we'd all be clones and lack interest in nurturing our children of the opposite sex.
