Help with translation into Italian

Post by tbottegal » 13 Apr 2004, 02:56

Hi,

Please help translate my table of genealogy terms into Italian:
  • Father/mother = padre/madre
    Grandfather/mother = nonno/a
    Great Grandfather/mother = bisnonno/a
    GG Grandfather/mother = ?/?

    Son/daughter = figlio/a
    Brother/sister = fratello/sorella
    Nephew/niece = nipote/?
    Grand nephew/niece = ?/?
    Great grand nephew/niece = ?/?

    Uncle/Aunt = zio/a
    Grand Uncle/Aunt = ?/?
    Great Grand Uncle/Aunt = ?/?
    GG Grand Uncle/Aunt = ?/?

    (First) Cousin = Cugino/a
    Second Cousin = ?
    Third Cousin = ?

    (First) Cousin Once Removed = ?
[/b]Thanks,
T. Bottegal

GG Grandfather/mother = trisavola(or trisnonna)
Nephew/niece = (il)nipote/(la)nipote
Grand nephew/niece = (il)pronipote/(la) pronipote

Great grand nephew/niece = (il)pro-pronipote/(la)pro-pronipote

Grand Uncle/Aunt = prozio/prozia

Great Grand Uncle/Aunt = pro-prozio/pro-prozia

GG Grand Uncle/Aunt = pro-pro-prozio/pro-pro-prozia

Second Cousin = Cugino/cugina in secondo

Third Cousin = cugino/cugina in terzo

Hi Suanj,

Thanks for the translations. This helps a lot.

One final question: In the diagram below, if

A & B are husband & wife, then
C & D are brothers, and
G & H are first cousins.

G & K are first cousins once removed (in English);
what would this relationship be in Italian?

Code: Select all

             A --- B
                |
                |
            ---------
            |       |
            |       |
      E --- C       D --- F
         |             |
         |             |
   L --- G             H --- I
      |                   |
      |                   |
      M                   K

Thanks again,
T. Bottegal
