Getting on with distant cousins?


Loyal Member

In my family tree it has lead me to meet up in person with distant cousins, some of whom are 3rd and 4th cousins.

My dad has a distant cousin in Suffolk. There fathers were first cousins, their paternal grandads were brothers. So they share 2 great grandparents. I am a 3rd cousin to my dads cousins children.

I contact them quite often and have even met up with 4th cousins from Australia.

Have any of you got into regular contact with more distant cousins?
