The neices of my husband are blood relatives to him but not to me, and since their mother is my sister-in-law, I call her children my neices-in-law and they call me Aunt Doreen.
The definition would be more of a familial one rather than a legal one; the census taker was likely trying to pinpoint the relationship of the neice to the head of household. Everyone is counted in the household at the time of a census and rarely do you see words such as "visitor" or "guest".

> I have come upon a relationship I've never heard of and hope someone can give me help. On a census in OHIO a 33 yr old female is a "niece-in-law". How is someone a "niece-in-law". I can't seem to fit the last name of the head of household or the wife into the family. Catherine
