Do I have this right?

Recommended Posts

Howdy;

I've got a question for ya!

Okay, so my Papa's (My Grandfather) Aunt is still alive.

I've just started writing her letters. (2) And I've gotten two back from her! Yay (P.S. She is 99 years young) I just want to know if this is right.....

Is she my Great-GreatAunt OR just my Great Aunt?

Here's my rough work.... ;)

My Great Grandfather is my Papa's Dad.

My Aunt is therefore my Papas Aunt.

Therefore she is my Dad's Great Aunt.

Therefore she is my Great-Great Aunt?

Do I have of right?

Thanks a bunch!

:)

Okay so my rough work sucks.

Let me re-write;

My Great Grandfather's sister is still alive.

My Great Grandfather is my Papa's Dad.

Therefore my Grwat Grandfathers sister is my Papa's Aunt.

Therefore she is my Dads Grwat Aunt;

Right?

Does that make her my Great Great Aunt or my Great Aunt

so

Yes you are correct. You could also call her your 2nd Great Aunt. Just keep in mind that it might make the 3rd and 4th Great Aunts slightly jealous, but such is the pecking order!

Yes, you have it right.

Your parent's sister is your aunt.

Your grandparent's sister is your great aunt.

Your great-grandparent's sister (e.g. the woman in question) is your great-great aunt (or second-great aunt).
