The phrase "nth cousin m times removed" means that if the (least) distances to a common ancestor are d1 and d2, then min(d1, d2) = n+1, and |d1 - d2| = m.

(Usual "cousin" with d1=d2=2 are n=1, m=0.)

(Just noting down for future reference, though I don't expect to ever use it…)

@svat So your siblings are your zeroth cousins, and you are your own -1st cousin.
