What Relation Is My Mothers Cousin to Me?


My mothers cousin's relation to me is termed as first cousins once removed. The 'once removed' means that one of the two relatives is one generation removed from being a first cousin with the other. The word 'removed 'is used only when it involves going down the family tree.
