Genetics aren't the only thing that can determine a child's characteristics, but the children in these striking photo pairings prove that their ability to define a family's appearance over the course of several generations can be irresistible. In these families, a comparison between a child and their parents or even grand-parents at the same age prove that sometimes, it's all in the genes!

If you've got some childhood photos of your parents or grandparents that look just like you, we'd love to see the comparison! Just edit them side-by-side and add them to this list.
