Does anyone know how Italians refer to a first cousin's child? In English we would say he is my first cousin once removed. How would this be referred to in Italian?
Contact me if you have info about the families: Mastronardi, Liburdi, Nicolia, Testani, Calcagni, Colella, Polselli, Iaboni or Zangrilli fro the Province of Frosinone

Unfortunately, Italian language hasn't a proper way to correctly indicate this kind of relationship. We may indifferently say "cousin" or "2nd cousin", which both are wrong definition: the English one is much better and more precise.
