#C
Number of Cousin (1C = 1st cousin, 2C = 2nd cousin, etc.)
#R
Number of times removed
(1R = once removed, 2R = twice removed, etc.)
On the top row, find the relationship of one person to the common ancestor and follow the column straight down. Find the other person's relationship to the common ancestor on the left hand column and follow that row straight across. The relationship is where the projected row and column meet.



NOTE: A first cousin once removed is a term that could describe either the child of your first cousin (in the descendancy) or the child of your great-aunt (in the ascendancy).
