Henry of Monmouth 9th great-grandparents are also my 25th great-grandparents. Am I right in calculating that he is therefore my 26th cousin, 16 times removed?
Hello @Jon Strebler
I'm not an expert but using the info in
I calculate you to be 10th cousins 16 times removed.
9th great-grandchild & 25th great-grandchild
The cousin degree is 10th Cousins ... (the 9th great-grandchild + 1 generation). Remember to use the cousin closest to the common ancestor.
The generation difference is 16 times removed ... (25th-9th). The number of generations between them.
