HOW to read? To determine your relationship with another relative, first determine your common ancestor. Say it is a great grandparent for you and a great-great grandparent for the other person. Start with Source and slide down the vertical column to great grandchild (you; line 4). Slide down on the horizontal plane to the other person who is the great-great grandchild (“GG child”; line 5). Your relationship is 2C1R.
