Poll: Twins in your family tree?

Do you ever find yourself seeing double?

There's been a peak in twin births, particularly in the US. A report by the National Center for Health Statistics indicates that the twin birth rate rose 76% since 1980, and in 2009, one in every 30 babies born in the US was a twin.

In the past, we've written about twins, and the MyHeritage family even has its own set of twins!

With the celebration of National Siblings Day yesterday, we want to know how many of you have twins in your family history. Let us know!

Poll: Does luck – good or bad – run in your family?

Can luck, or good fortune, be inherited?

Earlier this year we wrote about a lucky lottery story, from 2011, that focused on the McCauley family. Kimberly was delighted when she won $100,000 in North Carolina in a new scratcher game because she'd never imagined ever winning a prize.

She'd always assumed the odds were against her, as her mother had already won big prizes in two other lotteries!

Then there are those of us who have the opposite, tragic experiences that plague our families.

To return to our opening question, do you think luck - good or bad - runs in your family?

Share your answer in the poll below, and leave examples in the comments section.
