Re: Descendants of Twins #general


When I unexpectedly had fraternal female twins 28 years ago, people asked me if it ran in the family. My answer at that time was "it does now". Since doing genealogy, I realized that it DOES run in my family. Identical twins do not, but having fraternal twins is governed by the female line and whether she releases two eggs during ovulation. Practically every single female descendant of my maternal great-great-grandmother had twins. My sisters did not, but I guess I was the lucky one. Now to see if my daughters have twins!
