Instructions for Using a Relationship Chart

  1. Chose two members of your family and figure out which ancestor they have in common. For example, if you chose yourself (Person 1) and a cousin (Person 2), you would have a grandparent in common.
  2. Looking at the top row of the chart, Person 1’s relationship to the common ancestor (Grandparent) is “Grandson or Granddaughter.”
  3. Looking at the far left column of the chart, Person 2’s relationship to the common ancestor (Grandparent) is “Grandson or Granddaughter.”
  4. The intersection of the row and column indicates the relationship of Person 1 and Person 2. In this example, the relationship of Person 1 to Person 2 is “First Cousin.”
