No I don't believe you can have a half sister once removed because there is a common parent. To be once removed the relative would have had a common relative from the previous generation.

Wouldn't that make them step-nieces?

no, i dont think so, because they are my stepfathers' daughters' not my sisters' daughters'or even not my sisters daughtershalf siblings daughters, they are my half sisters' halfsisters', I was just being  faceyious,but  facetiousness apart relationships are very strange sometimes!
if on his third marriage he had had more children then maybe my sisters could have claimed them as their half sisters once removed, although logically they would have just been another set of half siblings, I think ,my stepfather was seeking someone who would give him a son, but I think he was only programmed to produce girls. his female sperm were just stronger swimmers and that is that.

I've got a half 2nd cousin once removed.  Her father is my half 2nd cousin, her grandfather my half 1st cousin once removed, and her g.grandmother my half g.aunt.  Her chlidren are my half 2nd cousins twice removed. (According to my Legacy family tree program).

The g.grandmother, is a half sister to my gran - same mother, different father.

Marcie - If they are your stepfather's daughters then they are no relation to you, unless the mother is also your mother, then they would be your half sisters.

OK, so it's a bit more complicated in your case. But the title of your thread is the more general "can you have a half sister once removed?".
If the daughter of a sister is a niece (rather than a sister once removed), then the daughter of a half-sister would be a half-niece. Not sure if that is an official title though.

If all the children have your stepfather as their father then they are not "removed" they are half sisters as they share the same father but a different mother.

Are they not step-sisters? Do your previously known half-sisters share a parent with the newly discovered half-sisters?
