Hi all
I do not put my bit in very often with discussions, but wanted to just say that I find it all tooooo confusing when referring to Great Aunt/Uncles ( I am ok for maybe 3 gens back - after that forget it). I need to use fingers to count backwards, so to throw the word "Grand" would be just way to much for my little head and when it comes to 'Removed', I try not to go there very often :-)

Hello Keith. I do not find the use of Great, Grand or Great Grand
confusing, but I do agree that the"removed cousins " terms are a total
mystery to me. Cheers, Bob
