Igbo Household Segmentation

The lineage segments into two groups according to sets of brothers - (E and F) and (G and H) - from the same mother.
After the branch estabished by B's sons has segmented, it begins to grow according to the standard rules.
  • F takes a second wife
  • K's sons marry and bring in wives, while her daughter marries out.
  • P's son marries and starts a new generation, while her daughter marries out
  • E's sister's son moves in with his wife and child
