Understanding removed cousins

Updated: Feb 18

Understanding removed cousins can seem complicated, but is actually quite simple. If the cousin is in your generation, they are not removed. If they are one generation away from yours (in your parents' generation or children's generation), they are "once removed". If they are two generations from yours (in your grandparents' generation or your grandchildrens' generation), they are "twice removed".
