"Cousins" - first, second etc. are in the same generation.
"Cousins Removed" - once removed, twice removed etc. are in different
Once Removed = one generation apart
Twice Removed = two generations apart etc.
She and your Dad are in the same generation = fourth cousins
You and she are one generation apart = fourth cousins once removed
She and your children would be two generations apart = fourth cousins twice
I Think --------- LOL
