Family Look-alike Competition: Results By Aaron July 16, 2015 Share Share Copy Link A few weeks ago we asked you to send in your look-alike photos and the response has been amazing! We want to thank all of you who submitted. It was great to see uncanny family resemblances between the generations. With so many photos submitted from around the world, it was really difficult to choose a winner. But without further ado, we’d like to wish congratulations to Sheila Van Zant who sent in these incredible look-alike images produced 200 years apart! Honorable John Brownlow First Viscount Tyrconnel, Knight of the Molt Honorable Order of the Bath (c.1740) and John Brownlow (born 1953) Some of the photos made us do a double-take, including the following three runner-up entries: Louis Beckstrom (born 1917) and great-grandson Mathew Beckstrom (born 1995) Born 87 years apart: Great-grandmother Michelle and great-grandaughter Lucy Great-grandfather Benjamin and great-grandson John Here are some more of our favorite photos from around the world including Sweden, the Netherlands, Brazil, USA, Australia and Germany. Great-grand-aunt Ida (b. 1898) and great-grand-niece Caroline (age 34) Grandmother Caroline (age 10) with grandaughter Jackie (age 24) Grandfather Henry Daniel (age 21) and grandson Casey Edward (age 21) Maternal first cousins Walter and Juan Mother Kae and daughter Laura, taken about 20 years apart Taken 120 years apart: Olaus (born 1871) and Max (born 1991) Taken some 100 years apart: Great-grand-uncle Jakob (age 21) and great-grand-nephew Daniel (age 19) There are lots more photos that we couldn’t include in one blog post. Check our Pinterest album to see all the amazing entries. Photos (and other images, such as paintings) capture the essence of people, places and things and are among the most desirable of family history treasures. An old photo can tell a family story and teach you about the lives of your ancestors. Have you learned any stories through your old family photos? Let us know in the comments below!
