Cousin Finder

Instructions:  Block 1 should be a common grandparent, with their direct descendents across the top and side of this form. Start with a simple problem first, then try the more difficult ones. Print YOUR name in block No. 3 across on the first row.  Print a known FIRST COUSIN's name in block No. 3 down in the first column. Print your father or mother in block No. 2 across on the first row. Print your aunt or uncle in block No. 2 down in the first column, and print your common grandparent in block No. 1 (the top left corner).  To show SECOND COUSINS, put your children's names in block No. 4 across the top and your cousin's children in block No. 4 down in the first column.
