Can't explain Steve :confused: I thought, with all those Burgesses you'd have written the article/info page :2fun: :2fun:
Good luck with the cousins Janice :)

:2fun: :2fun: :2fun: that was funny Woody.

Janice it can be a maze at times. I found a distant cousin and she worked out that we are 14th cousins removed :eek: ...well i did say a DISTANT cousin. glad she worked it out i still cant :rolleyes:

Not enough paper, and not enough ink. And to top it off, not enough intelligence to sort them out.:D :D

I don't want here about Burgess again.:mad: :2fun: :2fun: Until next time.:)

I hope the link will clear this up Janice.

Steve.:)

Thanks everyone! Thanks for the link Steve, I can see why no one tried to explain it:eek:

If I follow the chart in that link I am now in touch with four first cousins once removed and two second cousins...not exactly distant cousins, but some of them I didn't know had had! Fun:biggrin:

Seeing the post from Ellie prompted me to ask something I've never been able to fathom....how do you work out if a cousin is 1st, 2nd etc and especially, how many times removed?

Thanks all......

Janice
Its difficult , but I cheat :rolleyes: and use my family history tree making software. I dont know about everyone else but I find it gets complicated trying to remember who's who. I find using that software helps.:rolleyes:
