the question I am asking - is there a Program that out there that will
work out a more definate answer than FTW does.

Why not work it out yourself? As I was taught, to get the
relationship between two living people, count back the number of
generations on each side to the nearest common ancestor. If the
numbers are different, the two people are of different generations.
That difference is the 'removed' number. Subtract one from the
smaller number of generations to get the 'n th' cousin.

Think about it. One generation back is your parents, and the two people
would be siblings. Two generations gives first cousin, three
generations, second cousin, and so on.

However, I can't imagine two living people could ever be 15 times removed!
