3rd cousins and 4th perhaps?

Well, my father is the baby of a large family. There is 20 yrs difference between himself and his oldest brother, so...he nieces and nephews his age and older than himself(those being my first cousins), so I have many second cousins who are older and or younger than me and my age that of course living in the small town of VB I knew and went to school with. So now most of my third cousins are my kids ages....I am getting lost here would that make them Ethan nd Emma's 4th cousins?? Or do I have that line up totally skewed? Of course funerals and weddings are really the only time we see each other now.

Well, since you're lost, here's how it works:


  • Your parents' siblings' children are your first cousins.

  • Your first cousins' children are your first cousins once removed.

  • Your first cousins' grandchildren are your first cousins twice removed.

  • Your parents' first cousins are *also* your first cousins once removed.

  • Your parents' first cousins' children are your second cousins.

  • Your second cousins' children are your second cousins once removed.

  • Your second cousins' grandchildren are your second cousins twice removed.

  • Your parents' second cousins' children are your third cousins.



And so on. Make sense so far? So...


  • Your children and your siblings' children (who are your nieces and nephews) are first cousins.

  • Your children and your first cousins' children (who are your first cousins once removed) are second cousins.

  • Your children and your second cousins' children (who are your second cousins once removed) are third cousins.



Another way to look at it:


  • The nearest relatives you and your first cousins have in common are your grandparents.

  • The nearest relatives you and your second cousins have in common are your great-grandparents.

  • The nearest relatives you and your third cousins have in common are your great-great-grandparents.



Whew!

Of course, everyone up in Van Buren is related to one another, so I'm sure you do know plenty of third, fourth, and ninth cousins!
