I am having a hard time understanding this.
I was reading in another blog that George Bush is related to Obama by being 11th cousing 3 times removed.
What the heck does 3 times removed even mean??
How can you remove someone?? I don't understand, HELP, I'm going crazy over this.
Thank you in advance
it means that one of them is a descendant of the other person's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent and the other is a a descendant of the other person's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent.
I stopped over at ask.com this is what I found,..
it means two generations away from you. For example, my mother's cousin is my cousin "once removed" she is of my mother's generation which is the one before mine. A cousin who is "twice removed" would be the same generation as your grandparents.

It means if you hook up, they can't throw you in jail and even the tabloids would have trouble using it to sell papers.
What does it mean?
Not much. It's so convoluted you could deduce that quantum string theory is the root cause for malaria. Yes, they may actually be related through a very long string of associations, but all that proves is that we are all likely related in some distant, believe it or not....
It could mean they do not include each other on the gift list for christmas, because they have already been removed.
LOL. I like this answer. Not correct, but bloody funny.
Ha ha, that's cute Thank you for your comment Jane dee
Can that also mean that they are not aware that they are even related? If someone was removed once how can they be removed twice???
once removed means 'a generation apart'
So, three generations ago, Bush and Obama had a common relative who was the offspring of each of their families 11 times out from their first cousins.
For example, if your cousin has a child, that child is your second cousin, and so on.
I read somewhere that we are all 50th cousins of each other anyway. Just one big happy family
My dear qd, it could also mean that they are not aware of many things!
However, I do prefer BOB. That's swaggers kinda cute.
Great! Now I understand, thank you darkide for breaking it down for me, and thank you all for commenting.
Madame X I was reading on another site that we are all related in someway, if you look back far enough in the family tree.
so may be we are all 50th cousin 10 times removes LOL
Thank you once again
The degree of cousinhood depends on the distance from the common ancestor. For example:
Adam m. Beatrice
Charles m. Doris Edward m. Fiona
Geoffrey m. Harriet Ian m. Janet
Keith m. Margaret Norman m. Olivia
Peter m. Queenie Robert m. Sarah
Charles and Edward are brothers. Geoffrey and Ian are first cousins. Keith and Norman are second cousins. Peter and Robert are third cousins.
Geoffrey and Norman are first cousins once removed, as are Keith and Ian.
Geoffrey and Robert are first cousins twice removed, as are Peter and Ian.
Keith and Robert are second cousins once removed, as are Peter and Norman.
