  1. Actually that’s really not so bad. Obviously the descendants split off and went their own ways in between. And second cousins was fairly standard. Five generations back is at least 150 years; the town belonged to the Russian Empire at the time. People married first or second cousins all the time “back in the day” for a number of reasons.

  2. Third cousins? Even if the parents were second cousins, who cares? (I may have been spending too much time around people who can trace their family trees back 10 generations. You will generally find out how you’re related to your spouse, if you’re coming from the same ethnic group, at that point.)
