Understand The Difference Between Second Cousins And Cousins Once Removed

Remembering the difference between a "second cousin" and a "cousin once removed" is one of those facts that I have filed in my brain as non-essential. Therefore, I think I know the difference, but then I get fuzzy on the details.

Luckily I now have a handy chart to bookmark in my web browser so that I never forget again.

Remembering what my mom’s cousin’s children are in relation to me is always a tricky one for me. Using this chart, I can see that they are my second cousins. And their kids? My second cousins once removed. Their kids? Second cousins twice removed.

So there you have it. You’ll never be cousin-confused again - or if you are, just call them all cousins and call it day!
