Three Generations of the Same Family Born on the Same Date

Two generations of the Family with the same birthdate.
Two generations of the Family with the same birthdate.

israel today - september 2007


The Bar Ilan family, from a small town near Tel Aviv, has accomplished the incredible: Three generations all share the same birthday. Grandfather Yaakov, his son and grandchild Eli were all born on June 6th. The amazed doctors figured out that the chances of three generations being born on the same day are the same as winning the lottery twice! *


Brief Description of the Three Generations and Four Members

The Wong Family also has three generations having the same birthday (skipping the third generation) and going to the fourth generation. Great grandfather Dn. Z. Wong and daughter Nornie, and great grandchildren (twin girls, Faith and Grace Wong) were all born on October 25th. Thus making it four members with the same birthday. The twins will be twelve years old October 25, 2016. Our family differs from the Bar llan Family in that the second and fourth generations were not sons but daughters. I wonder what we are winning, certainly not lottery since we do not gamble. We are blessed to be Christians inheriting the blessing poured on Abraham on those who obey the God of Abraham.

Genesis 12:3

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:
and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

We are winning more than lottery twice for we are the children of God. Thank God for this blessing and may the Lord guide us throughout all our lives.

The family has four members with the same birth date because the last generation consist of twin girls. We are thankful for this unique situation. Praise and thank you Lord God Almighty!

Dn. Z. Wong has passed away and so no photo is available.

A Very happy Birthday! Three generations same birthdate!

A Very happy birthday! Three generations of one family celebrate on the same day.

by Helen Lawson for the Daily Mail

Three generations of one family celebrate on the same day after baby is born on same day as her mother and great grandfather. Phoebe Chadwick and great grandfather Eric Bell.

The shared birthdays are even more remarkable because the probability of the feat occurring is only 1 in 48,627,127.

Note: For the Wong family, the odds would be bigger because four members are involved rather than three.



Similarities of Two Generations

It could not be just a coincidence that the father and daughter had many similarities. Both were ordained ministers, teachers, had appendicitis and with left and right eye operations. None of the other seven children suffered from the same diseases.

The other two members are twin girls skipping the next generation and are still young without showing signs of any sickness.


Same Birth Date

Is it rare to have 4 members of the family in 3 generations with the same birth date?

That is utterly incredible. It is a miracle on its own. What are the odds of this happening! This must get to the Guinness book of records.

Thanks for the comments! I have no idea of how incredible it is but I know that it ia a miracle that here it involves 4 generations whereas the Bar Ilan Family involves 3 generations and they are all male descendants. Here we have 4 people involved for the 4th generation are twin girls.

That's really neat! Thanks for sharing that... My husband was born on his mother's birthday and my ex was born on his father's birthday. We joke that if we ever get pregnant in the correct month that the baby will be born on my husband's birthday!

That's great and interesting, son and mother having the same birthday and also the ex and the father also having the same birthday.

Not only born on the same date as the father, the daughter had the same profession (teachers), both ordained deacons, both had their appendixes removed and also both had cataracts on both eyes. Both the father and daughter also taught at the Methodist Boys School, Ipoh, Malaysia. How's that for coincidence?

Lucky you to be born on your Uncle's birthday and for him to say that it was the greatest birthday gift he could have received must make you feel very wanted and loved.

My Father... brother... his son share the same birthday - tomorrow Nov 26th. My brother's other son is born on his mothers birthday... again November birthday's.

As for me... My ex husband and brother born in September... his two sister born in April. Our two kids..... Daughter born in September and our son in April. Same months - but happened to switch the sex/months. Wasn't noticed until aftarwards.

The thing is... each child is a blessing - no matter when or the coincidences.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Your father, brother and nephew were born on the same date. They share the Bar Ilan family in Israel. However, you have

your brother's son sharing the same birthday with his mother. Quite amazing!

In the Wong family, four people, four generations share the same birthday date.

Happy Thanksgiving.

On Monday, April 19th my brother became a granddad for the first time. April 19th is my brother's birthday, his only son's birthday and now his only grandchild shares their birthday. What are the odds when the child and grandchild are the only children of their parents?

Kate 6 years ago

We are 4 members in 3 generations. My father and I have the same profession, both have cataracts removed and appendectomy.

That's so cool to see that there are other family members that are born on the same day. Atleast were not alone. My mother was born on the 24th of May in the 50's, she me on the 24th of May in the 70's and she had my sister on the 24th of May in the early part of the 80's. Now my Brother is expecting a son and the doctor says that he should be born on or around the same time frame. So the pressure is on for my brothers wife to give birth on the 24th of May. This will be 4 generations all being born on the same day- 2 girls and 2 boys.

Thanks for visiting the hub. I do not know whether it is rare to have 4 children born on Friday. That is different from having the same birth date.
