• Family Tree With Cousins Template

The failure to understand the difference between first, second, and third cousins makes the family tree with cousins template appear confusing.

The number only represents the generational difference in common ancestors.

First cousins have a common grandparent at about two generations, while second cousins share a great-grandparent at about three generations. Third cousins have a common great-great-grandparent and are separated by four generations in your family tree with cousins template.

Generally, you determine the cousin number by counting the “greats” in your common ancestor’s title and adding 1. For instance, if you share a grandparent, the number of “greats” is 0 + 1= 1. Therefore, these individuals are your first cousins.

When I Realized

Most people think of their family tree as a straight line, with parents and siblings on one side and grandparents and cousins on the other. But for me, my family tree is more like a complicated web, with aunts, uncles and cousins scattered in all directions.

It's definitely not your average family tree! 

My mom always tells the story of how, when she was a little girl, her grandmother took her to visit her aunt. When they got there, my mom was surprised to see that her aunt had six kids! She couldn't believe it. 'But where are the parents?' she asked.

Her grandma just laughed and said, 'Your aunt is married to her cousin!'
