Relationship Chart

 

With all the family names and family members, did you ever wonder just how we are related to each other. 

Well now you can find out by using the chart below. To find out how you are related to another person in our family:

1) Find your 'common ancestors' - Your 'common ancestors ' may be Samuel & Hannah Kaplan, or they may be any 

of the following generations, such as Millie & Joe Goldman.

1) Find your own relationship to your 'common ancestors' in the top row.

2) Find the relationship of the other person to the 'common ancestors' in the left column.

3) Where the row and the column intersect is your relationship to that person.

Here are a couple of examples:

1) I am a great-great-grandchild of Samuel and Hannah, so I am number 4 at the top of the chart. 

Ettie Handelman is a grandchild of Samuel and Hannah, so she is number 2 on the left side column on the chart. 

Therefore, we are first cousins, twice removed.

2) I am a great-grandchild of Miriam and Abe Kravitz, which makes me number 3 at the top of the chart. 

Elaine Gluckman is a grandchild of Miriam and Abe Kravitz, so she is number 2 on the left column. 

Therefore, we are first cousins, once removed.
