My aunt is also my fourth cousin once removed but when I checked her relationship via my Ancestry tree it just said that she was my uncle’s wife.

Second, third, fourth etc cousins and the term removed can be confusing. http://www.obliquity.com/family/misc/cousin.html contains a chart which explains how to calculate the relationship between two persons.

I always try and make a point of contacting them to see what the connection is. What annoys me is that sometimes these people ignore you and you know they will be getting an email from Ancestry telling them that a message from me is available to view. But you have to grin and bear it because you cannot do anything about it. But it still riles!!

Brilliant to know of the relationships in the tree as I have really struggled in the past when I have been asked how are we related.

Thanks for sharing :)

Pat and Moira – thank you for flagging this, as with all new functionality you get the odd bug. I will be sure to forward on to our technical team to get it fixed!

I have now discovered that my wife of 5 years; despite coming from a completely different part of the UK, is in fact my 7th cousin, as we share the same Great Grandfather x 6. What are the odds on that happening?

My granddaughter will be thrilled when I tell her tomorrow!
