A 2nd cousin twice removed.



Defining a 2nd cousin twice removed.

 The parents A - B of the brother & sister   this can be termed as a 0 degree of relationship

A brother & sister each get married and have children   this can be termed as a 1st degree of relationship

Those children are 1st cousins [grand children of A - B  ] to each other.  this can be termed as a 2nd degree of relationship

When that brother & sister have grand children through the marriage of their  own children

The children in this generations are 2nd cousins [ great grand children of A - B ] to each other.  this can be termed as a 3rd degree of relationship

When the brother & sister have great grand children, then those children are 3rd cousins  [ great great grand children of A - B ]   this can be termed as a 4th degree of relationship

Each generation forward becomes 4th,  [ great great great grand children of A - B ]  5,  [  great great great great grand children of A - B ] 6th cousins   or 5th, 6th or 7th degree of relationship


The children who are straight 2nd cousins [ great grand children of A - B ] would be a 2nd cousin once removed to the  a 3rd cousin or a 1st cousin

The children who are straight 2nd cousins [ great grand children of A - B ] would be a 2nd cousin once removed to the  a 4th cousin

The cousin once, twice, third or fourth removed in on a diagonal line between the 2nd cousin and  the descendant from a common ancestor, in this case A - B who is in an extra generation and usually younger than the age of the individual, the 2nd cousin.
