Actually, the "grandcendants" is growing on me. My MIL celebrates her 90th birthday this week. I am putting together a picture album that will include lots of grandcendants!

How could they possibly not be dependents if they are relatives they had to decend from one side or the other of your family unless they married into the family

Dependents are what you claim on your income taxes.

Descendants are your children, their children, children of those children ... forever.

Relatives share a common ancestor. So all your descendants are also relatives, but not all relatives are descendants.

Though I am not quite sure, I think this is a first cousin, second cousin sort of relationship as these are not direct relatives of yours (to the OP [Tallysmom]).

I just learned that 1st cousins share the same grandparents where as cousins "removed" can be of generational differences. I like the wikipedia article on cousins it helps to explain the more distant relatives.

It reminds me of an old joke about a couple who were taken to the hospital by her Italian uncle from New York. She has twins and they parents are aging over names.

The uncle says, "What did you have?"

"A girl and a boy, uncle."

"How beautiful! Da neice and de nephew," he said in his thick accent and smiled broadly

The went home with their children: Deneese and Deneffew .
