|My Mothers First Cousin Lois has 3 daughters, Lois- Lynn, Rocks-Ann and Faye on the left. On the right is my 1st cousin Andrea with Granddaughter Erin.|
All of the cousins in these photos I have known all my life, and am still in touch with a couple times a year and at weddings/funerals/reunions.
I thought I had ONLY 6 1st cousins on Paternal side and 4 on Maternal side. Wrong!
All the children of my 1st cousins are my 1st cousins once removed and there children are my 1st cousins twice removed and on down the line. If the line starts with 1st cousin it continues down each generation as 1st removed.
I find these cousins make DOZENS OF 1st COUSINS
On My Mothers side of the family, the red X above are my 1st Cousins and spouses, with children and grandchildren.
there children are my 1st cousins once removed, their grandchildren are my 1st cousins twice times removed. Wow
|My 1st cousin Bonnie has contributed two 1st cousins once removed and Seven 1st cousins twice removed.|
|1st cousin Sharie gave me three 1st cousins once removed and 2 twice removed|
