A-Z Challenge 2014: K is for Kith and Kin

www.a-to-zchallenge.com
Kith and Kin.  We've all got 'em - friends and relatives.  But sometimes you look at the names on your piece of paper/in your genealogy program and wonder - how am I related to that particular person?  For that, you need a relationship calculator.  That's all right if you are using a genealogy program on your computer, because most of them have the necessary calculator.  But what if you are using paper and pencil?  It's probably best if you start off by learning how which person is related to you.

Here is a relationship chart.  This particular one was designed originally by Alice J Ramsay in 1987,and I was able to copy it because it falls under the Creative Commons Attribution - NoDerivs 2.5 licence.

  2. Thank you, too, for this chart. I always get confused with the cousins "once/twice removed" etc. so it is good to see it in this format.

  3. Where I come from, I am surrounded by doctors, engineering and business grads. It is so refreshing to come across a person who has such in-depth knowledge in genealogy!
