What Is 2nd Cousin Twice Removed? With This Graph You’ll Understand


Twice Removed

August 6, 2017

Quite a few readers of 52 Weeks in Slovakia take an interest in family and genealogy. This chart is a helpful one in explaining family relationships, like the definition of “Second Cousin Once Removed.”

While these terms are helpful in defining relationship, I’m still going to defer to the simpler and more inclusive-feeling Slovak tradition of calling anyone even remotely related to me “cousin,” “aunt,” or “uncle.”

Thank you to Alice J. Ramsey and to Lifehacker for this informative chart.
