Subject: [QUEBEC] Multiple Cousinships (Is that a word?)

Some of you may already know how intrigued I am by the Sorel and region intermarriages among the founding families. The multiplicity of relationships they produced particularly among the Lavallées, the family I spend most of my research time on, amazes me.
I have just come across one marriage which has certainly the greatest number of relationships that I have seen.
Albertine Lavallée, dau. of Pierre & Alphonsine Cardin married Donat Chevalier son of Joseph & Amanda Lavallée on Feb 2, 1925 in the parish of Ste-Anne-de-Sorel.
I thought I would find out what relationships they had and this is the result:
4th cousins once removed
6th cousins once removed
7th cousins once removed
7th cousins twice removed
8th cousins once removed
9th cousins once removed
This is just on the Lavallée side because although there was a marriage of Catherine to Jean Chevalier 1701 from the first Lavallée family in Sorel I have not charted the intervening Chevalier generations.
Do any of the rest of you find this amazing?
