S04 E34 Cousin Definitions Explained

Cousins are people who share a common ancestor that is at least 2 generations away from them – like a grandparent or great-grandparent. You and your siblings are not cousins because your parents are only 1 generation away from you.

Simple enough, right?

Join us as we talk inter-family relationship definitions to help clear away some of the confusion about what degree of kinship you share with others.
