Have you ever wondered what something like “Second Cousin Once Removed” means or what exactly is your relationship to a more distant relative? Well, this chart is one of the easiest to understand!
The top version is in color and even includes the “Percentage of Genetic Similarity” between you and another relative. I included the black and white version if you want to print out the chart.
If you have trouble figuring this out, let me know in the comments below. Include how you are related to the other person, so I can figure it out for you and tell you how I did it. For example: “this person is the grandchild of my 3rd great-grandparent” – which by the way is first cousin thrice removed… unless, of course, he is in your direct line and therefore your great-grandparent…lol). Just remember to go in a straight line until you reach a branch (aka an aunt or uncle) and then slide over and continue down to the person you want. Easy peasy with THIS chart!
I have the charts saved in Google Docs for you to download or to simply print from here. If you have any trouble viewing the two-page Google Doc, please let me know in the comments section below.
