Whether you’re gathering with extended family for a holiday or reunion, or connecting with distant genetic cousins via email or facebook, it’s always convenient to have a firm understanding of how exactly everyone is related.
It’s a simple enough task when you’re talking about first cousins, or even great aunts, but what about your grandfather’s sister’s granddaughter you met at Thanksgiving? Or that nice women from Alabama who found you on Gedmatch and who claims to be the great granddaughter of your long searched for 3rd great grandfather Edward?
