|Title||Add support for 'Tribal Pages' Relationship Notation|
|Description|| CLOSED - Lack Of Interest
Corresponding recently with someone who is (according to the How Related tool) my 3rd cousin twice removed,
and I his (pressing Swap makes no difference to the result)...
But there's a chart on Genes Reunited apparently reproduced from Tracing Your Family History by Anthony Adolph
(Collins, revised edition, 2008), which says that if he is my third cousin twice removed, then I am his first cousin twice
removed, or his fifth cousin twice removed, depending on whether he's my grandfather's third cousin or I his
(I hope you're following this so far).
The point is surely, regardless of who's "correct", there are clearly at least two schools of thought,
hence some ambiguity with this notation.
I would much prefer FH to use the notation found in Tribal Pages, which is
"grandfather's third cousin", or
"third cousin's grandson",
as appropriate, which also gives a sense of the direction as well as the size of the generation gap.
