How to Use This Chart
To use this chart, first establish a common ancestor. For example, if you were to use your mom, she would be the "Common Ancestor" located in the box that is in Row 1, Column 1.
Using your mother as the "Common Ancestor", let's say that you have a grandson and you want to know that grandson's relationship to a great-granddaughter. Find your grandson (your mom's great grandson) located in Row 1, Column 4. Then, find the great granddaughter, located in Row 4, Column 1. The box where these two ancestors meet, which is in Row 4, Column 4, shows that they are "Second Cousins".
