Locate a person a long the top row, according to their relationship to the nearest Original Ancestor.Locate the other person along the left column, according to their relationship to the same Original Ancestor – where the two lines cross indicate the relationship of the two people to each other.

For example I am seeking the relationship of Regina Moran, Bernie’s Daughter and Nana’s last Grand Child, to Gerard Patrick Moran, John’s son and Nana’s first Grand Child.The closest common Original Ancestor they share is a Grand Parent, therefore they are First Cousins.
