I see you have a solution, so I will just ask about the structure of
your data. Is this pedigree data? It appears as if you might be
using offspring data for the parent. Several packages can do the
"imputation", if this is the case. Off the top of my head, I would
start with Merlin or SimWalk, or maybe GeneCounting for haplotypes.
Otherwise, I might avoid such suggestive IDs.
