What's the point? -- People interested in genealogy can use myheritage to establish family history or to locate long-lost relatives. Upload pictures of your family and if your portfolio is made public, you might discover that you have an Aunt Jane and Uncle Ed in Memphis, Tenn., or a cousin Earl in Jerome, Idaho.

What to look for --Think you favor Halle Berry? Or have you ever wondered which celebrity could be your twin? Then check out the site's Face Recognition demo. Upload a picture of yourself, and myheritage.com will tell you which celebrity you favor the most -- at least to some degree, though it seems to matter what angle you are photographed in, too. It's a fun game. But you never know: could a career in celebrity impersonation be in store for you?
