In Response To: Re: What is your most interesting discovery? ()
There are a LOT of second cousin marriages in my NC family. There are some family members that I am related to in 5 or 6 ways--all by blood, not marriage! I even have a case of two great grand aunts that married 1st cousins in the 1870s. Siblings married sibling second cousins too, and those cousins married each other as well! It makes listing family relationships a challenge to say the least. The funny thing about family tree heritage is that it will only list my relationship to the wife relative to the relationship to the husband if I am related to both by blood and it doesn't acknowledge the blood relationship to each other! The family joke now is that before marriage, they should send me the name of the potential spouse as well as the names of their parents and grandparents to make sure they are not related in any way!!
