Full Answer

For example, if Lacy is Carol's first cousin twice removed, this means that she is two generations away from Carol's generation. If two first cousins have children, these children are called second cousins. They are not removed because they are a part of the same generation. First cousins share the same grandparents, while second cousins share the same great-grandparents. Third cousins share the same great-great-grandparents.
