Identifying Your Kin

This relationship chart was devised by Estelle Pryor. It's for those of us who can never figure out how they are related to their so-called "cousins."

Place the name of the common ancestor in the top left block of the square. List your descendants down the left column of the chart. List the descendants of your "cousin" in the blocks across the chart. Follow the columns down and across for any two people to determine their relationship.
