Nina Beryl Tucker

Nina Tucker (Centre) and her first cousins once removed
(Eva & Lloyd's mother is a cousin to Nina)
Have you ever wondered what "First Cousin Three Times Removed" means?

Nina Beryl Tucker is my cousin, three times removed.  To determine the relationship, we therefore need to step back three generations of cousins.  

My mother's cousins are my first cousins once removed 
     (My Great Grandmother is their Grandmother)
My grandmother's cousins are my first cousins twice removed
     (My Great Great Grandmother is their Grandmother)
My great grandmother's cousins are my first cousins three times removed
     (My Great Great Great Grandmother is their Grandmother)

22nd January 1921
Sophie Geyer, Nina Tucker, Vic Presser, Lil Geyer, Eva Pilgrim and possibly Albert Presser

  1. I jumped when I saw this name byt the Nina I knew lived in Norway.

  2. I get those removed and third cousins confused all the time! Lovely wedding picture.

  3. Look at those curls on those little girls! And what a lovely wedding portrait.

  4. I am amazed at the quality of the photos! Your blog and it's background are perfect for showcasing them! Happy AtoZing!
    Revisit the Tender Years with me during the #AtoZChallenge at Life & Faith in Caneyhead!

  5. Love finding new bloggers during the #Challenge. I have several friends who are interested in genealogy that I will forward your link to. Great job. If you have time or interest in hotels and inns, that's my theme this year. Research becomes more and more important to my writing and curiosity. Your blog is a great teacher.

  6. No matter where old photos were taken, they always seemed to be posed the same way. I swear my mother and her two sisters are in exactly the same pose you show.
