Re: Autosomal Analysis Question #dna

I read with interest this discussion.  My mtDNA haplotype is X2b7 so not M33.  But in my mother's paternal line we all have inherited a slightly Asian or Mongolian eye fold.  It shows up primarily at birth and in old age, in between those ages it is not as noticeable.   To the best of my knowledge it is a dominant trait, as we all have had it.  It is stronger in some of us than others.  When my son was born, it was so strong that his doctor did some tests and assured me that he would have normal intelligence. (He has a PhD).  I had to reassure the doctors that this was a family trait and not a matter for concern.  I have always wondered where this came from.
