Overview

We pursue it as a hobby and search for it in the most out-of-the-way places . . . yet few of us actually know very much about kinship. For instance, do you know the degree of blood relationship, or consanguinity, between yourself and your first cousins? Between third cousins and second cousins once removed? Do you know anything at all about the removes? Do you understand the difference between a greataunt and a grandaunt? Or between a cousin-german and a cater cousin? And what about double first cousins? If you're a little vague about any of this, then this book is for you. In clear, practical terms it explains everything there is to know about kinship; about agnate and cognate kinship, collateral and fictive kinship, the kinship connection of orphans, foundlings, foster children, and adopted children. Everything!

The expanded second edition features new chapters on the subjects of marriage, names, and wills (kinship and the rights of inheritance); an expanded treatment of other subjects, such as degrees of consanguinity and how to calculate blood relationships; and a new glossary, bibliography, and an index. this new second Jackie Arnold's acclaimed Kinship: It's All Relative is now more authoritative than ever.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Alas<-->we must deal with the bibliographic nightmares. This is a slight revision of the 1994 second edition<-->new index, bibliography, glossary. The publisher has not assigned a new ISBN. Beware. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Internet Bookwatch
Jackie Smith Arnold's Kinship: It's All Relative appears in its second edition, providing chapters on the basics of genealogy and kinship, from family trees to cousins and parental rights. All are excellent basic references.
