RELATIONSHIP CHART
A relationship between two individuals can be determined if a common ancestor has been identified.
Both lines begin with the common ancestor, shown on the chart as number 1.  For the first individual,
move up the A' column on the far right until you locate his/her relationship to the common ancestor. 
For the second individual, move down the B' column on the far right until you locate his/her relationship
to the common ancestor.  Now trace the green and white lines to the box on the left.  The correct
legal relationship is shown where the bands intersect.
For example, A4 and B4 are 2nd cousins.   By the same token, if A2 were the daughter of  
the common ancestor and B5 was the common ancestor's great-great granddaughter, then B5 would be
A2's second great niece.
