My great-grandfather and his brother married 2 sisters, one of which was my great-grandmother. Their children would be double first cousins. I have pictures of my grandfather and a picture of his double first cousin and they looked like twins!

In the case of the double first cousins, there was only one child of that married couple. I only have a picture of him as a toddler. One of his descendants burned all of the family pictures. I recently contacted the one of the decedent's to request a photo of the wife who is my great great aunt. They don't have any. I shared all of the photos I have of my great great uncle. They said they were the first photos they had ever seen.

I think we do share a family disease... diabetes. I'm still trying to figure out which side of the family that came from.

Hello I was wondering if you could answer my question. My biological grandfather has a new wife and they have kids and the kids have kids. Who would all of them be to me?

Your grandfather's children with his new wife would be your half uncles and aunts, since they have the same father, but different mothers. Their children's children would be half first cousins.

It's not clear whether the children are your grandfather's children or whether they are his wife's children from a previous relationship. If they are your grandfather's children, then the other response is correct.

If they are from her previous relationship, then they aren't really anything to you - they are the children and grandchildren of your grandfather's wife. You could maybe call her your step-grandmother, and her children your step aunts/uncles, and their children your step 1st cousins. But those aren't legal definitions as far as I know.

To understand the removed part you look at who the common ancestor is and how many generations you are from them and if you both are the same number. If you are 3 generations from shared ancestors and your cousin is 2 generations then you are 2nd cousins once removed. If you are 4 generations from and your cousin is 2 generations from then you are second cousins twice removed. You always take the smaller number and the removed is the difference between the two. If the removed is 0 you are whatever distance away cousins.
