It's no real surprise that people end up looking like their parents, but when you skip a few generations back and people still look like they're ancestors from 200 years ago, it's pretty mind blowing.
My Heritage recently had a competition for the people who look most alike with their ancestors. Here are the very best.
Father and Son.
Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandson.
Olaus (born 1871) and Max (born 1991).
Great-Aunt Ida (born 1898) and Great-Niece Caroline (born 1981).
Grandfather Henry Daniel and Grandson Casey Edward (both photographed at age 21).
Four generations apart!
Great-Grandmother Michelle and Great-Granddaughter Lucy (born 87 years apart).
Grandfather and Grandson.
Grandmother Jackie and Granddaughter Caroline.
Great-Grandfather Louis (born 1917) and Great-Grandson Matthew (born 1995).
Great-Grandfather Benjamin and Great-Grandson John.
These two have to be the most impressive. More than 200 years apart and look at the resemblance!
Pretty cool right? we bet that if you go back to your ancestors if you are lucky enough to still have pictures of them then you'll see some striking resemblances too.
