This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


A child of a sibling of your parents is a first cousin.
A grandchild of a sibling of your grandparents is a second cousin.
And so on for cousins of the same generation as you.

For cousins of a different generation, you use removed. So if a cousin is one generation different - in either direction - they are once removed. Two generations - twice removed and so on.

The simple word cousin, used alone, covers all of these relatives.
