Genes house information about heredity. Some genetic features may skip a generation before they’re seen. So, there is nothing weird about a child that barely looks like their parents. The resemblance can emerge in different ways: some people look very much like their parents and others only recognize themselves in the photos of their grandparents.
Bright Side has collected photos from internet users who decided to recreate old pictures of their parents and grandparents. We must say, they did a great job because they look so much like their ancestors.
