Relationship chart

I found this image whilst browsing the help section of www.GenesReunited.co.uk a while ago, I thought it was the perfect way of showing how I am related to other relatives.  Of course, when I’m speaking to non-family history researchers I’ll probably still use ‘distant cousin’ or something similar for ease of explanation.

What do you think? How do you tell others about the relationship between you and a ‘distant’ relative?
