I received legal notice today...
Apparently, my first cousin, twice removed, passed on 2010-03-19 in Alabama at the age of 98.

I wonder if there are any people reading this other than me that understand what relation that makes you to them?

Yah, see, I had to have it spelled out to me.

My great great grandfather was her grandfather.

Wikipedia to the rescue!

Seriously, though, I had only a very vague idea of what a lot of common family relationships were until I was learning Spanish and I had to be able to answer questions about family trees.

The picture doesn't explain it right, but the chart works. Her grandparents on her mom's side are my great great grandparents on my dad's side.

The fun thing is that, on her paternal side, there are several double first cousins, twice removed. Apparently, double first cousins are more genetically related than half siblings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cousin is a good link. I didn't even think to grab it. Thx.
