Wow look at it grow!!
I know! It's fun to see all the different families being tied back to Jesse! :)
Wow, so Armando and Haley are actually third cousins... o_o that makes it even worse!
Wait, actually, they are second cousins. Oops.
Hehehe, they're technically 2nd cousins once removed. (My daughter and I looked it up to figure out how that works!) Do they become "half 2nd cousins once removed" if their shared ancestor had kids with different mamas? :)
Ohhh, yes, I see that now. And, I believe half-cousins is technically a valid term, but I don't think it's used often colloquially. But there's a pretty dramatic difference in terms of how related (genetically) you are to your full cousin vs. half cousins. Like, half-cousins only share one grandparent while full cousins share two. I kind of like the sound of "half second cousins once removed," though it might be easier to just say "cousins... of some sort." Lol...I really like genealogy. ^.^'
If you're interested, I found this relatedness calculator that shows exactly how related Haley and Armando would be, because I was curious. The answer: Not very. Heh.http://apps.nolanlawson.com/relatedness-calculator/index?q=parent%27s+half+second+cousin
Very nice family tree. In one of the stories I'm writing for the sims marriage between cousins is the main subject. It is very interesting how genealogy works. I personally think that second cousins have very relation to each other. You could possibly marry your first cousin and have a healthy child, but of course there are risks since you share one part of the genes. However, once you look at a second cousin that's not a big deal. I used to have crushes on my cousins (first cousins) when I was growing up. Thank God it never lasted hahahaha. I was wondering how were you able to make the family tree like that? It looks really nice. :)
Thanks! It's a labor of love! I wanted to include their traits, so the family tree generators didn't work. I just wound up creating it in my word program and setting all the pictures as icons. I just shift everything over when it's time to add a spouse or kids. :)
Oops I meant to say very little relation to each other. Sorry.
The link to your family tree isn't working for me. I was wondering if the link is bad or something...DD
Thank you darling daughter. I fixed it. :)
