Charting Relationships

August 20, 2014 § 4 Comments

It can be devilishly difficult to figure out relationships among people in your head, especially when your client says something like, “She was my double third cousin on my momma’s side, and she married my husband’s great-uncle’s niece after her first husband died.”

But it has to be done in estate work, property (especially partition), wrongful death, and in any case where you have to compute relationships within the third degree.

One super tool is the Nolan Chart of Relationships and Degrees of Kindred, which is reproduced below:



You can access a large-size .jpg file by clicking this link.

You will also find it at 51 So.2d 542.

I’ve posted about the Nolan Chart here before.
