Half-Cousin.
« on: Monday 19 April 21 16:12 BST (UK) »
Received the copy of a will.
The person who made it was unmarried and she has made a number of bequests to individuals who are described as 'Half-Cousins.'

What is a 'Half-Cousin?'

thanks iluleah - yes, makes sense - the father of the person making the will had a number of children from previous marriages.
