Family relations - Assistance required

Postby pete s » Fri Feb 07, 2014 12:57 pm

What first inspired me to look at my family tree was a family story that my Grand Parents were releated before they were married.

I had found this out a few years ago, but today have managed to actually string the bits together to form the tree (so to speak). I will try and explain it but its more obvious on the tree.

My Nans Great Grand Father married the sister of my Grandfathers Grandfather

or put another way

My Nans Great, Great Grandfather is my Grandfathers Great Grandfather

Is there a simpler way of discribing/explaining this?

Second cousin once removed. I hope. Second cousins have a common great grandparent. Drop DOWN (always down) on one generation for once removed.
