Title: Ramsay’s Relationship Chart
Snippet: I’ll be the first to admit I can’t tell you with certainty the exact relationship term for your granduncle’s grandchild. I do however have a chart to help me figure it out if you really need to know.
Family relationship charts are found scattered across the Internet and in genealogy books. They’ve been around for many decades, and every now and again, someone creates a new version or a new representation of an old style. I’ve seen many patterns—tables, line diagrams, fans and wheels—but I haven’t seen Alice J. Ramsay’s design before.
Ramsay created her relationship chart in January 1987. It’s been modified many times since then, but the original design idea remains the same.
