What Is My Father's Cousin to Me?

Answer

Your father's cousin is your first cousin once removed, meaning that there is a generation difference between you and the cousin to your father. The child of your father's cousin would therefore be your 2nd cousin. Using the same extrapolation, your grandfather's cousin would be your cousin, twice removed.
1 Additional Answer
Your father's cousin is your first cousin. First cousins once removed are believed to be 4th degree relatives and share one sixteenth of their genes. If first cousins have children, the risk of the children having defects is 6 – 8%.
