DNA & Genetics

Comparing Genetics with Ancestors

Go to familysearch.org > sign in > activities > compare-a-face

This activity works great on a smartphone so you can take a picture right then and there.

They will give you several different ancestors that you look similar to.

Pick one to learn about.

Teach us about them:

  • What genetic similarities do you notice?
  • Are there stories about them? If so, can you find any similarities in your lifestyle or personality?
  • Any other fun facts you want to share?
  • Bring a picture of them!
