    Makes sense to me.

    Good morning, LB. My computer appears to be working tonight for a change.

    Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer Broomie.

    MARG! I was beginning to think that maybe your new
    dog chewed your PC beyond repair.

    Hear is a chart outlining basic cousin relationships in our world.
    I kind of like Irwin’s way.

    I went to the site you recommended and learned that: “You and your third cousin’s great-grandparents were siblings”. I am going with Irwin’s way!

    I agree with Irwin and margueritem. I think I need a nap whilst I ponder the meaning of this.

    Third cousin, twice removed…once forcibly! Spike Milligan.

    One way to explain differnces in cousins is as follows.
    Your first cousin is your aunt’s child. Your second cousin is your mother’s cousin. Your third cousin would be the child of you mothr’s cousin.

    No, the child of your mother’s cousin would be your second cousin once removed. Your child would be the third cousin of your second cousin’s child. The “removed” comes in when you are speaking of later generations only on one side of the relationship.

    “You and your third cousin’s great-grandparents were siblings”.


    Just goes to show how bad grammar can affect the meaning of a sentence. It should have been “the great-grandparents of you and your third cousin were siblings”.

    I have used the free FamilySearch.org to find lots of ancestors and cousins. But, I do not even try to do the ‘removed’ and ‘2nd’ designations.
