Title: Family tree
Post by: mazikeen on 28/01/2019 15:33:49
Hi I'm new to the site and not sure if this is the right spot for this question. Just wonder if someone could help me with this darn Genealogy tree thing, I've managed to fry every brain cell trying to figure it out!   Okay I found a 3 cousin, but not sure how we're related in the tree.  This my problem  in my distant family tree there are 2 brothers
Thomas her grt grd dad and Matthew,  But I'm not sure if its Matthew or Thomas who's my grt gnd dad,
 
If Thomas's own 3 kids have 3 kids, they be Thomas,s Grand kids and  be Cousins to each other right? 

And if Matthew has 2 kids, and those 2 each have 2 kids, they Matthew's grand kids and would be Cousins to each other?... So would Matthew grand kids and Thomas's grand kids Cousins also?
any help would be appreciated thanks Angie

Yes, second cousins.
Second cousins have the same great-grandparents as you, but not the same grandparents.
