Dear 100 Hour Board,

Here comes another strange one for you. The other day I met a girl named Leslie. We got to talking and I discovered that she is my Great-grandmother's brother's granddaughter. My question is what is she in relation to me?

- El Esquimal Flaco

A: Dear El Esquimal Flaco,


Leslie is your second cousin, once removed.

How do I know? Well, your common ancestors are your great-great grandparents.

Oh. Yeah, and I looked at this chart but that doesn't make it any less amazing that I figured it out.
