Relationship Chart

Relationship Chart

For a true ‘relationship’ to exist, there must be an ancestor who is common to both individuals.  Examine the chart below, the Common Ancestor is Box 1 on the Horizontal Scale (HS) as well as Box 1 on the Vertical Scale (VS).

EXAMPLE:     If you have a grandson of that common ancestor, as seen in Box 3 of the HS, and you want to know that grandson’s relationship to a great-granddaughter, seen in Box 4 on the VS.
Follow Box 4 (VS) across to where it meets the vertical pathway to Box 3 (HS), then where they cross tells you the relationship — they are first cousins once removed.
