Genetics, skin color, and movie making

7 Sep 1996 17:11:27 -0400

I have two questions relating to a film I am writing that I would love
information about or guidence to a reliable source. 1) Is it possible for
a caucasian couple to have a child who's skin is black and what is the
gene that controlls skin color? 2) When in medical history was it possible
to identify a father? (Meaning when was it possible to tell whether Child
A came from Father B or Father C)?

Please feel free to answer here, e-mail me directly, or drop me a line
either place telling me a more appropriate place to direct this question.

Thanks in advance,
