Dont forget that diet and nurture will change the outward appearence slightly. Genetical Twins, doesnt mean that 30 odd years later the two twins are still identical in everything

They look much to alike to be...non-identical twins IMHO
The doctor who delivered them says they are fraternal, which means that they had two separate placental sacks. If they were identical then there would have only been one placenta. A DNA test would determine that as well, since identical twins would have identical DNA and fraternal twins would each have unique DNA. However, I think that after 35 years even identical twins' DNA would have changed enough that each would be unique.
