Dear 100 Hour Board,

What should I call the relation between my mother's first cousin's children and me?

- Liningson

A: Dear Liningson-

They are second cousins to you, and first cousins once removed to your mother.

-The Franchise
A: Dear Liningson,

Hmm. I always called my parents' cousins my second cousins, but the Franchise is right.

Go read http://www.genealogy.com/16_cousn.html?Welcome=1086636154 - then you'll know the proper term for anyone who's even remotely related to you.
