Figuring out a relationship
Posted by: Todd Jenkins (ID *****9814) Date: November 15, 2012 at 07:37:15

Hello! I'm new to all of this consanguinity stuff, and I figure this is the best place on the 'net to ask a question.

I have a Facebook friend I've never met but we're related distantly. Looking through my father's genealogy I determined that her great-great-great-grandfather and my great-great-grandfather were brothers, born in the 1830s. How, then, would our relationship be designated? I imagine we'd be something like fourth cousins, but I don't know about removal and such. I appreciate any help you folks can offer.

Todd, San Bernardino, CA
