After the decision of the original author of the simpl_cousins to not support webtrees version 1.5 I have ported some of these modules to the latest versions of webtrees.

This module creates an additional tab in Individual view which list all of the first cousins of that person.


This section documents installation instructions for vytux_cousins.

  1. Unzip the files and upload them to the webtrees /modules_v3/ folder on your web server.

  2. Login to webtrees as administrator and go to Administration --> Modules, and find the module. It will be called "Cousins". Check it has a tick for "Enabled"

  3. Next go to the "Tabs" menu. Set the access level and position for the menu item to suit your preference. It will probably have defaulted to "Show only to managers".

  4. Finally click SAVE, to complete the installation.


To update this module simply overwrite all of the files on your server with the new version.
