Nope, 19 degrees, but the relationship finder has me her 12th cousin twice removed.

Oh, well, Judy and Henry 8th are 4th cousins 12 times removed. (Partied too loudly no doubt and had to be removed) 

18 for me.
14th cousins here.
16 degrees...
23 degrees, via the illegitimate daughter of my 2x great-grandfather. Not bad considering I live in Australia.
according to Family Finder, Judy and I are 13th cousins once removed.... I'm not sure how we figure "degrees".  Ok, I just read an article on "degrees".  Still not understanding about it but Judy and I share a common ancestor, one Henry Rice Mason.  He is my 13th great grandfather but is Judy's 12th great grandfather.  So, does that mean Judy and I are 13 degrees from each other?  Or 12?

crying Took a look at Gumm-43 and Smith-157141 and how we are "related" and we're 12th Cousins 1 removed ... all apparently seemingly due to edward aston-82 through his son Walter and several of his children (judy from one, myself from another) -- with a great deal of uncertainty for each of us 

With THAT much "confidence" and $7 I could get a pretty decent cuppa from the local Starbucks ... LOL

I reckon I'm about 9 or 10, I don't have all the cousin links in. Peter Allen (Liza's husband) 's grandmother Maud Ethel Haynes is my 5th cousin through the Haynes family of Co Cork who settled in Armidale NSW in the 1850s :)
