This is something we did in my science class in eighth grade when we were studying genetics. Try it with your family. It's really cool.

I have the same build as most the women on that side as well, rather thin, but I'm taller than most of them at a little over 5'4". Makes me feel tall. I also have longer fingers than they tend to and higher feet arches. We all joke about being a thin Hobbit family.
I must've gotten my height from my Dad. And my almond-shaped eyes. Mom's side all have big round, mostly blue eyes. Mine are coppery hazel/dark brown/dark green. Thank gosh I didn't get my Dad's carrot colored hair. Everyone says I got my dark brown/nearly black hair and light skin from my Mom's Dad and Grandma, who was Swiss.
The not-as-good things I inherited are stomach problems and low blood-sugar issues from my Mom's side as well. Oh well, you get what you get!
