This week, Feb 3–9, is the annual “Doppelgänger Week” on Facebook, which invites users to post a picture of a celebrity or personality they most resemble. Here at NEHGS, we'd like to add our own family history twist!
Starting Sunday, Feb 3, we'd like to invite our NEHGS Facebook friends to post a photo of an ancestor or relative who they most resemble. If you prefer to go in the other direction by posting a photo of a younger relative who resembles you, feel free.
At the end of the week, NEHGS will select three winners who will each receive a 30-minute expert consultation and a book from our publications department. Visit the NEHGS Facebook page for more info or to post your photos. Remember, we'll need to see a photo of you and your ancestor!

NEHGS is excited to run this promotion on our Facebook page. To upload your images, simply go to our Facebook page and post to the NEHGS wall. This will allow users to upload photos and to comment on them as well. You can post each photograph separately, share an album, or post a single picture you've created in a photo editing program. If you have any questions feel free to email Alessandra Magno at firstname.lastname@example.org.
