Father Look-alike Competition: Win a MyHeritage DNA Kit!

Comments89

Back in July 2015, we held a look-alike photo competition and asked users to send in look-alike pictures of family members from different generations. The results were incredible. In some cases descendants were so similar to their ancestors, it seemed as though we were looking at photos of the same person.

Louis Beckstrom (born 1917) and great-grandson Mathew Beckstrom (born 1995)

With Father’s Day coming up next month, we’ve decided to re-open the look-alike competition again, this time for children and fathers.

Have you heard all your life that you look exactly like your father? Do you have any photos of yourself and of your dad that make you do a double-take? We want to see the uncanny resemblances between the two of you, and we’re offering one lucky winner the chance to win a MyHeritage DNA kit!

Send in your family photos, and details about the people in your photos to stories@myheritage.com by June 18, 2017, for a chance to win. We’ll post the top photos on the blog.

Good luck — We look forward to seeing your photos!

    A big part of the reason I want to do this is because my dad was adopted (and is deceased) so I don’t have any information. I don’t think I look like him, but I’d still like to win!

    Learning of my Dad and finding my birth mother would be a heart settling fix for me. I’m 69 years old and have never been able to find or learn about her, or my brother whom I’ve never met or at least remember seeing as a 3 year old. My family who would know some information are all deceased and always avoided telling me anything when they were alive.
