This chart is simple to use and will tell you in an instant how you are related to someone else in your family tree. I will give you three examples.

First: How is Isabella Rose Stronczek related to Kelly Wayne Willey ? We know that Isabella is the 2nd Great Grandchild of Guy and Ada Huntley and the 3rd Great Grandchild of Albert and Nettie Huntley. We also know that Kelly is the Grandchild of Roxie and Roy Willey and the Great Grandchild of Albert and Nettie Huntley. We draw a line from 6 in the top row (3rd Great Grandchild) down to the number 4 row (Great Grandchild) and we see that Isabella and Kelly are 2nd Cousins twice removed.

Second: How is Isabella related to General Zedidiah Huntington of the Revolutionary War? We know that Isabella is the 10th Great Grandchild of Simon Huntington and that Zedidiah was the 2rd Great Grandchild of Simon Huntington. We draw a line from 14 in the top row down to the number 5 row and we see that Isabella is a 3rd cousin 9 times removed to General Zedidiah Huntington.

Third: How is Isabella related to Samuel Huntington, "Signer of the Declaration of Independence and 7th President of the Continental Congress? Again we know that Isabella is the 10th Great Grandchild of Simon Huntington and that Samuel was the Great Grandchild of Simon Huntington. This time we draw the line down from 14 in the top row to the number 4 row (Great Grandchild) and we see that Isabella and Samuel are 2nd Cousins ten times removed.
