primo hermano


Explanation:
a cousin twice removed is 'primos segundos' I confess to being a bit confused about the first cousin and once removed because I believe they both indicate the generations between them ...
I hope this helps

ella era su sobrina segunda


Explanation:
Please check the reference comment I inserted below.

According to the link I include here, "a first cousin once-removed refers to any child of one of your first cousins"

and according to the DRAE a child of one of your first cousins is a "sobrino segundo"

I hope this is of some help on this very confusing subject1!!

Reference: First cousins, and other relations

Reference information:
A first cousin is someone's parent's sibling's child (same generation, e.g., my aunt's daughter is my first cousin). A first cousin, once-removed is the offspring of his/her first cousin (different generation). See reference for more detailed lineage information. I don't know Spanish language kinship well-enough to offer an opinion on translation, though! :/
