There are times when it seems we are looking into a mirror when we look at an ancestor’s photo. Remember hearing from your family that you look like your grandfather?
Take two photos side-by-side. They were taken 60 years apart, one is in color the other an old black-and-white photo. Yet, the two photos are eerily similar as if it's the same person.
Do you have any photos that make you do a double take? We want to see the uncanny resemblances you and your ancestors have, and we're offering one lucky winner the chance to win a family photo shoot.
Send in your family photos, and details about who are in the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15, 2015 for a chance to win. We'll post our favorite photos on the blog.
Looking forward to see your photos.
Please note that entering this competition means you agree to the terms and conditions.
Want to know more about that old family photograph? Unsure who those people are next to your grandparents?
In honor of our global “Treasure Family Photos” initiative, we're excited to offer weekly competitions to help discover the history behind your old photos.
Each week, one lucky winner will have the chance to join Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective and world-class expert in photo analysis, for a free photo consultation session.
The winner will be able to show Maureen their photos and learn more about them. A photo curator, genealogist and preservation expert, she’ll help you uncover the history behind your pictures and discover more about your ancestors.
