Can some of you that have been doing research for a long time answer this query:
If I have people on my tree that are my 3rd cousins does that make them 4th cousins to my children or 3rd cousins once removed:

Thank you in advance:

There is a ‘cousin’ chart on familysearch website which you can download for permanent info
