First Cousins
The son or daughter of an uncle or aunt. First cousins are people of the same generation with common grandparents. Generally just referred to as Cousins.
Second Cousins
Are the children of two first cousins i.e. the child of one cousin relative to the child of another cousin. The children of two second cousins are third cousins and so on.
Removed Cousins
Are from different generations. A first cousins child is a persons first cousin once removed.
A first cousins grandchild is a persons first cousin twice removed.

To find the relationship between two people first find a common ancestor. Then count the number of generations separating each person from the common ancestor. If the two numbers are the same then the order of cousinhood is one less than that number. If the numbers are not equal then the order is one less than the smaller number and the degree of removal is the difference between the two numbers.

The people from whom a person is descended. This page shows 5 generations of the ancestors of Robert George Eldridge, the author of Eldridge Genealogy World Wide, based on DNA testing.
