If the family and the member of the group of the same family have the same fingerprints, then everone thinks that fingerprints are hereditary. Everyone predicts that fingerprints will seem like that they are hereditary. This group chose this project because we were interested in the process of fingerprinting and whether the fingerprints are hereditary.

The project's purpose is to determine if fingerprints are hereditary or if they are not hereditary.
