WHAT DOES PATRILINEAGE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Patrilineality

Patrilineality is a system in which an individual belongs to his or her father's lineage. It generally involves the inheritance of property, names, or titles through the male line. One's patriline is one's father and his father and his father... and so on. Adjective forms are patrilineal, agnatic, and male-line. One's patriline is thus a record of descent from an ancestor to a descendant in which the individuals in all intervening generations are male. In cultural anthropology, a patrilineage is a consanguineal male and female kin group, each of whose members is descended from the common ancestor through male forebears. A person's family name and a man's genetic Y-DNA have descended down this same line from father to son. In a patrilineal descent system, an individual is considered to belong to the same descent group as his or her father from which the members' family name is commonly derived, although matrilineality has also been used as the descent group in some cultures. An agnate is one's genetic relative, male or female, exclusively through male ancestors.
