You might possibly be able to find the names of your great grandparents on Internet services such as Ancestry.com

More likely you can find them by:

  • Asking your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or older cousins
  • finding the birth records of your grandparents
  • finding their immigration records
  • finding the military records of your great grandfathers
  • finding the will of some of them
  • finding the grave stones

Two people who share the same great great grandparents are third cousins. To find a cousin relationship, find the common ancestor. If common ancestor is grandparents, they are 1st cousins. If common ancestor is great-grandparents, they are 2nd cousins. If common ancestor is great-great-grandparents, they are 3rd cousins.

Most people have four grandparents, eight great grandparents,16 great great grandparents and 32 great great grandparents. If one set of your great grandparents were first cousins, then then shared one set of their own grandparents. Then you have 30 instead of 32 great great grandparents.

* First cousins have the same grandparents. * Second cousins have the same great-grandparents. * Third cousins have the same great-great-grandparents. * Fourth cousins have the same great-great-great-grandparents. * Fifth cousins have the same great-great-great-great-grandparents.

Your great grandparents are the parents of your grandparents. A more specific answer is not possible without identifying the person whose great grandparents are to be identified.

Every person born has 2 parents. Your parent's parents are your grandparents. Your grandparents also had parents-- their parents are your great-grandparents. Your great-grandparents had parents, who are your great-great grandparents. You can keep tracing your genealogy backward to learn each generation who were parents in your direct family line-- people who are your great, great-great, great-great-great grandparents and so on back through the centuries.

In genealogy, you can follow your mother's or father's maternal or paternal side. Genealogy always starts with you and goes backward.YouYour Mother and FatherYour Grandparents, on both sidesBoth of your grandparents' parents continue the "line" you are following. From your mother's parents, or your father's parents (e.g. your 2 sets of grandparents), you can begin putting a number; however, for the first set, we just say "your great-grandparents".Your great-grandparents (Your Grandparents' parents)Your Second great-great-grandparentsYour Third (great-great)-great-grandparentsYour Fourth (great-great-great)-great-grandparentsYour Fifth (great-great-great-great)-great-grandparentsYour Sixth (great-great-great-great-great)-)great-grandparentsYour Seventh (great-great-great-great-great-great)-great-grandparentsYour Eighth (great-great-great-great-great-great-great)-great-grandparentsetc.Since it becomes cumbersome to keep saying "great-great-great...", family tree researchers just use the number and great for each tier of grandparents. So for example, "I found my 6th-great-grandparents had lived in Maryland."
