Contact Author So Many Relationships! Once you start digging, you begin to realize how interconnected we all are. There has been some research done to find out whether this is actually true.
What are the odds that you will find a relative in such a roundabout way? And, the size of the circle of connections is shrinking, thanks to social media.
It happened to me! My mother was also there. Mother and I were both flabbergasted! We did some further research, and we turned out to be distant cousins! Well, there are really only two. To begin with, we all presumably know that the brothers and sisters siblings of our parents are our aunts and uncles.
Just plain aunts and uncles. And, we all know that the parents of our parents are our grandparents. Now, when we go back a step in time, to those grandparents four of them, remember? Back up one more rung on the family ladder. Your grandparents parents, then, are your great-grandparents.
Similarly, their siblings are your great-grand aunts and uncles. Remember it this way: And then you are both great and grand! Those Whom You Know As discussed in my first article, it is your aunts and uncles with whom you will wish to speak to delve into the family history.
These are the relatives you are likely to know in person; that is, unless your entire family is very widely scattered. Many people are also lucky enough to know at least one of their cousins, if not several. Some folks even lived near enough to each other that they grew up and played with their cousins.
They become good friends; almost like extra brothers and sisters. In this way, much family history is shared; that is, you grow up just knowing it, because of the close interactions. Consider yourself lucky if such was the case for you.
For me, most of my cousins lived three thousand miles away, across the country. The ones who did live nearby did not live near enough to be playmates, nor were they my age.
I knew them all well enough, as to who they were and how connected to me, but I was too young at the time to even think of the topic, let alone ask interview questions. Just as you are niece or nephew to those aunts and uncles, so are your parents aunt and uncle to your cousins, who in turn are nieces and nephews to them.
Mud can be fun. Basic Cousins Chart Cousins are numbered, down through the generations Source There are many charts out there to help determine the level and type of cousinship, but the one I like best was shown to me some twenty years back by a distant cousin.
In its simplest terms, think of a removal of cousins simply as a next generational step down the tree. Their children, in turn, would be your first cousins twice removed, and so on.
It works at all levels. People who are third cousins are third cousins once removed from their offspring; and third cousins twice removed from the next generation.Family photos.
Looking through the pages of my family album, I can see a photo of my parents on their wedding day. My mother is wearing a beautiful dress and my father a blue suit. The Weasleys are considered one of the prominent wizarding families, although their lack of money and their sympathy for non-pure-blood wizards and even Muggles makes others look down on them.
They lived in The Burrow, a ramshackle house of four or five stories “a little way outside” the village. In the example family tree, Sam and Lyla are third cousins.
