How to use a "Relationship Chart"


To find the relationship between two individuals with a common ancestor, follow these instructions. Assuming Individual "A" is the 3x Great Grand Child of the common Ancestor, place him in the 3x Gr. Grand child portion along the top of the chart. To make things simple, Assuming that individual "B" is also a 3x Great Grand Child of that common Ancestor, place him in the 3x Gr. Grand child portion along the left hand side of the chart. Follow both lines to their intersection, and you will find that they are Fourth Cousins to each other. You may print this chart off for your own use, if you wish.
