I’ve been involved in a few debates in recent times for the correct terms for cousins once you go beyond the simple ‘cousin’ as in daughter/son of an uncle/aunt stage. What do you call the daughter/son of a cousin? Or a cousin of a cousin? There’s all sorts of numbers involved (always guaranteed to get me confused) in the names bandied about by knowledgable genealogists and don’t even get me started on the term ‘removed’, who removed them?!
I’ve finally got around to looking up the whole messy mess and it seems like I’m not the only one and so I’m going to post this funky chart that hopefully is both correct and enlightening:
Now I just have to spend some time considering, inwardly digesting and hopefully ‘learning’. Oh and if you’re one of those very knowledgable folks, any more ‘light’ would be gratefully received!
