I am confused by something...
My DH has a 1st cousin (W) and W has a son (A).
W is DH's 1st cousin, then A is DH's 2nd cousin - right??
THen W is my kids 2nd cousin and A is my kids 3rd cousin???
It doesn't really matter, but W adn DH are very close and so our kids will hopefully be close as well - so it is just my curiosity.....
What is A's relationship to my kids?? 2nd cousin or 3rd cousin???
Thanks in advance :-)
A is dh's first cousin once removed.
Your kids are first cousins once removed to W.
Your kids and A are second cousins.
First, second and third cousins etc are direct descendants of first cousins and of the same generation. Once, twice, thrice removed etc are direct descendants of first cousins but from different generations.

Lol Ratchettee, it is a difficult concept to wrap your head around. It took me a long time before it all clicked with me but once it clicks it is so crystal clear. If you are really interested, feel free to pm me and I should be able to explain it better without the character restrictions of this section.
