Family dilemma solved: Who does your child look like?

Family dilemma solved: Who does your child look like?


My name is Natalia and I am the country manager for Russia. I worked for Kindo and now I am excited to be a part of MyHeritage!

Have you ever had an argument in your family whether a child looks more like mom or dad? I did and wanted to share the full story with you how MyHeritage helped me resolve my family dilemma.

There are times when anyone can easily determine if a child looks like dad or mom. But that is not always the case. It happens that even members of the family cannot agree on the matter.

Lately, looking at my daughter I started to wonder whether she looks more like my husband or me. In fact, it has been an ongoing discussion in our family for a while now. Every time we go to see my in-laws, they start saying how our little angel is a total copy of her father in his childhood or his grandmother, when she was a little girl, and even her great grandmother.

On the other side, when we visit my family, they say she looks like me, and like my mom and my grandmother. So my husband and I disagree on this topic. He believes that she looks like me and often when I look at her, I see him. If not for MyHeritage, I would probably still be trying to figure out how to solve this “family argument”.

The look-alike meter One evening I was doing some research for the blog and found an article on cool features of MyHeritage. I was thrilled to find that there is such a great feature as the Look-alike Meter.

Of course, I tried it out. I uploaded decent pictures of my husband and me, and found a recent picture of our daughter. While waiting for the result I was speculating on what the percentage could be… I thought she would be 30% looking like me and 70% – like her daddy.

Just imagine how surprised I was to see that there is only 4% difference. And actually she looks more like me than my husband! She also got my temper and personality, but this is a totally different story 😉

So if you or someone you know has the same dilemma we had in my family, try our Myheritage Look-a-like Meter!

    hi Natalia.
    first, i wanted to add that i’m excited about the merging of Kindo as well, welcome. (although i’m not really the person to welcome you, that’s Gilads job 🙂 )
    face recognition is one of the coolest things MyHeritage have done.
    i wanted to ask if there is a plan to integrate this app with the family tree web site, so anyone at the family tree that has a user connected to the tree can press a button at his profile and this app would take his\her parents pics and compare, i think it whould b a great feature.

    personally i think i look more like my father 🙂
    but i’ll have to check it….
    have a great day.
