These Relatives Were Born Years Apart …But Their Genetics did Something Remarkable

, ,

Genetics are pretty much powerful, passing down each trait to the next few generations of the family. Unless you trace it, you can never be sure about the conditions of your family that you might inherit. Physical resemblance of parents and children is just usual due to genetics, but it doesn’t stop there.

To show how powerful genetics are, My Heritage held a contest to search for people who looked just like their ancestors, and some results are pretty awesome and uncanny.

Now do you believe that history repeats itself?
