Ever wondered how to calculate what degree cousin a relative is? It’s easy with a cousin chart like this one. Just figure out your relationship to your common ancestor along the top row, then find your relative’s relationship to the common ancestor on the far left row, then work your way into the chart until the column and row meet. That’s your degree of consanguinity (blood relation).

A couple of years ago I removed all advertising on this site from Google Adsense, as well as any sort of tracking scripts from Facebook or Google or any other parties. I invited visitors to chip in a few dollars to help offset the cost of hosting and maintaining the site. Many folks did step up and have offered to make donations, but now I own the server that the site is on and hosting is no longer an issue. BUT if you do feel helped out by the material here, please consider donating a few dollars to one of my absolute favorite genealogical resources, the Kellenberger Room at the New Bern Library.
Please send a check payable to New Bern Craven Co. Public Library with Kellenberger Room in the memo line to:
