Re: 3rd cousins and 4th perhaps?

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!
