    "In-law" would be a suffix in this case. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    The text 'in-law' isn't a prefix (which the video did claim) but a suffix.

    This is fucking stupid. Why cant we just call them by their names, names are literally invented just so we can identify why use another nickname that's so fucking confusing? It's like calling banana "Musa Acuminata"

    At 1:14 you said "in-law prefix", but is it not a suffix? I thought a prefix was before the root and suffix is after the root.

    So if I my 11th great (11 greats) grandparent is my friend’s 10th great grandparent (again, 10 greats), are we 11th cousins once removed or 10th cousins once removed?

    Much easier in indian country. everyone is your cousin unless they're you auntie or uncle. everyone else that is older than your parents is your grandma or grandpa. :)
