Relationship Terms
« on: Monday 06 November 17 18:58 GMT (UK) »
I hope I'm making this clear. I'm trying to ascertain the correct genealogical connection between two individuals under the following circumstances.

A man, Fred, marries twice and has children by both women.

A woman from his second marriage marries and has a daughter. In turn this daughter marries and the couple have a son.

What is the relationship of this son to a daughter of Fred's first marriage? And what is that daughter's relationship to this son?

No prizes here, just my eternal gratitude!!

Since Fred's 2 daughters would be 1/2 sisters, I think the terms might be 1/2 great-nephew or 1/2 grand-nephew and 1/2 great-aunt.
