Grr!  Ignore what I type, just listen to what I'm saying!

Your third cousin twice removed is your great-granparent's sibling's child,
or your great-grandparent's SIBLING'S great-great-great grandchild.

Now does anyone wonder WHY they invented the first, second, third/once,
twice, thrice removed titles?  Anyone actually want to talk about his
great-grandfather's sister's great-great-great grandson and be understood?
