If you have cousins you've never met that live far away and you want to get to know them how do you go about it? This happens in many families. I have cousins in the U.S., Ireland, Scotland and who knows where else. Unfortunately, sometimes our parents never keep in touch even by letter and we can go through life not knowing who some of our relatives are. You could start with asking your parents, an aunt, grandparents who the cousins are and where do they live. You need names to find the people. Hopefully someone in the family will have this information. Even if you get a name and you don't know exactly where they live you can do a search on the internet. Morman churches keep excellent records of births and deaths (and you don't have to be a Morman.) Hopefully you don't have a common last name and it will be easier to search out. If you find any last names (or recognize a cousins name) then you could try to get their phone # (by information from the operator) or if you're lucky enough to have an address you could write and introduce yourself and express that you would like to visit them. Geneaology is really a roaring business right now and a lot of people are tracking down their roots. I am actually doing that on both sides of my family and it's a lot of fun. It takes time and effort. Unfortunately, most websites charge for the information and you can't always rely on the info you get. It's best to ask older family members about relatives and you'd usually get correct information on how to contact them or at least where they live which will narrow down your search. Good luck Marcy

That depends on your relationship with them, in most cases they would not be considered a close relative as the nearest common ancestor is 5 generations away. Third cousins can very well become husband and wife. In that respect they would become very close, but they are not concidered closely related from a genetic point of view.

How is a second cousin related to you?

A Second Cousin is related to you by having the same great grandparent that you have. Your second cousin is the child of your parent's (first) cousin. "Second cousin" mean two generations below the sibling relationship. So, third cousins would be the relationship between the children of second cousins. Your parent's cousin would be your 1st cousin once removed. "Once removed" means moved away from the relationship by one generation. Your parent's cousin would be a 1st cousin twice removed to your child. Interesting note, cousins "removed" usually is a relationship term used only when referring to the upward generational relationship. In other words, while I might call my mom's cousin "my cousin once removed", my mom's cousin would likely refer to me as "my cousin's child."

What is the relationship between John the Baptist and Jesus?

They were first cousinsAnswerAccording to Luke's Gospel, John the Baptist and Jesus were second cousins, as their mothers, Elizabeth and Mary, were cousins. This information is not found outside Luke's Gospel, and the majority of New Testament scholars dismiss the story as unhistorical, with Uta Ranke-Heinemann (Putting Away Childish Things) saying that Elizabeth was a literary creation by the author of Luke's Gospel. So, on the scholarly view, John and Jesus were not related.AnswerThey were second cousins--though they didn't know each other very well.

How can you develop a close relationship over the phone with your cousins if you don't know them very well and they live far away?

Just start calling once in a while and ask if you can email them. Email is sometimes easier to do than phone calls, plus you can say things over email that seem wierd over the phone. Just tell them you feel like getting to know them better, they will not fault you for that or reject you.
