What does that mean, lol? I know I sound like an idiot but I always hear people talking about how they're related to someone and they're 2nd cousins twice removed. Just curious!!
If you have the same parents = siblings (which we all know), same grandparents in common = cousins, great grandparents in common you are second cousins. The child of your cousin is your cousin of that degree (because there is a one generation difference) once removed. The grand child of your cousin is your cousin twice removed because now the generation difference is two). The number of generations give you the number removed . So I have a cousin who has children my age. Her children are my cousins but once removed. My grandmother is their great-grandmother...I fit into the generation before theirs and that's what separates us, that's why the relation is once removed. (Just count the generations) But remember you have to have the same common grand parents.
