Dear Phil,

In essence, because the counting of degrees of
consanguinity starts with siblings, you will basically
have one number higher (in determining degrees of
consanguinity) than you will in counting "degrees" of
cousinage:

Examples:

Cousin Description Consanguinity

(1)

Philip VI of 1st cousins, 2nd &
France -> once removed 3rd degrees
Edward III of
England

(3)
Jean II (son of 2nd cousins 3rd degree
Philip VI) -> [also desc. as
Edward III of "3rd & 3rd"]
England


Not sure how the PAF program will present things, but
this is how the two forms of relationship description
"relate" to one another.

Hope this is helpful.

Cheers,

John
