How does the kinship calculator work?

You may find that the more people you add to your family tree, the more confusing their connection to each other becomes. Should that be the case, our handy kinship calculator can work out the relationship between any two relatives.

Firstly, click on the ancestor you’re curious about, and then on their full profile.

Select the option to 'Edit relationships' with the three dots button in the top right. This will pull up the 'Relations' tab, with the Kinship Calculator on the right-hand side.

Simply input another relative's name, and calculate the relationship.
