Karla Saravia, 54, a MyHeritage user from New York, left a comment on one of our Facebook Live sessions mentioning an extraordinary photo she discovered thanks to a DNA match on MyHeritage. Here is her story:

I received a DNA match with a third cousin. One day, I got a message from him, and using the last names that we had in common, we were able to work out that we are connected through my great-grandparents — he is a great-grandson of theirs.

We continued to speak, and then he shared a photograph of our common great-great-grandmother. The moment I saw it I noticed a clear resemblance to my mother. It was pretty exciting to see that picture, because it was my first time “meeting” this ancestor!
