Look-alike Competition: Win a family photo shoot!

Look-alike Competition: Win a family photo shoot!


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 stories@myheritage.com by June 15, 2015 for a chance to win. We’ll post our favorite photos on the blog.

Looking forward to see your photos.
