Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. With just the information you have provided, you and your husband are second cousins once removed. That is based solely on the relationship of your g-grandfather and his grandfather. If you provide the entire descent pattern, I will take another look at it and see if there are multiple relationships.

Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 6 years ago.

LOL. Sorry, I really don't know how common misconceptions are, only that people seem to have more trouble with cousin-ship than with any other relationships Wink The whole concept of "removeds" is a complicated one.
