Almost everyone in my family are right-handed with the exception of 2 relatives, who are left-handed, Any ideas as to why?

Also aren't we all really ambidextrous? Since we have to use both hands to eat with do most things such as dressing, typing for instance.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.
