lilysvn, Me, too! I resemble my late father the most in the family! I also wish I resemble my late mother. My 42 yr old daughter Tanya resembles both of her father Dave and me. Her 2 children Isla aged 8 and Finn aged 6 resemble both of her and her hubby Lincoln.

John Riley, my sister Maria and brother John are biological fraternal twins. As the oldest sibling, I resemble Maria more. She does not resemble John at all.

Reese Witherspoon looks young enough to be her daughter Ava’s older sister. I meant to say Reese looks too young to be her mother.

I have a picture of my great aunt in the early part of 20th century. It's me in edwardian clothes. Weird

Sometimes I see a photo of me and I think what was my mom doing there and I realize it's me!

My uncle and my sister both has a bald spot on their heads that was the same size and in in the same place.

Gee! I have a twin brother and we are fraternal twins not identical twins. We do look a lot the same but some of these generational pictures are so much more the same than we are.

Can’t comment on family similarities as my twin sister and I are adopted fraternal twins.

My second cousin looks remarkably like her great-great-great gramma in a photo from the late 1800s.

I'm 72 now and my Dad died aged 48 in 1962. Since some time back,every morning when I had to shave I would see someone staring at me who looked like my Dad, only to realize that I resemble him very much. I've become so conscious that my wife and I do not do anything naughty in the shower or where there's a mirror and have him staring at us.

A picture of me at the age of 18 months looks very like my grandson now at the same age, conversely having had a beard and long hair most of my life when I shaved it all off last year I began to look just like my father!
