Here is more information regarding cousin relationships as they apply to you:


FIRST COUSIN -- They are the children of your aunts and uncles.

FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED - These are the children of your first cousins - that is, one generation removed from being a first cousin.

SECOND COUSIN -- This is the relationship between your children and your first cousin's children.

FIRST COUSIN TWICE REMOVED -- Your first cousin's grandchild and the THIRD COUSIN to your grandchild.  Use the chart above for a graphical representation of this. 

HALF COUSINS -- This implies that only one of two parents is a blood parent.  For example,  where two siblings share only one parent, they are half-siblings. The children of these two half-siblings would be half-cousins, because they share only one of the grandparents.

DOUBLE COUSINS -- When two brothers marry two sisters, the children of each married pair are legally first cousins to each other.  In this special circumstance, they are related in this manner not only through their father's line, but also through their mother's.  These are called double cousins.  Regarding the children of these double cousins, the same rules apply.  For example,  My Grandfather and his brother married sisters.    Since my father is related to his first cousins on both his paternal and maternal sides, they are double first cousins.

I hope that this has helped to clear things up for you.
