As to the relation of cousins see below where the marriages
of Yungaru and Witteru are take as examples.

No 1
Yungeru - Yungaru
Wittaruan wittaruan
Wittaru - Wittanian Wittaru - Wittarian

No 2
Yungeru - Yungerean
Wittaman - Wittaru
Wittaru - Wittaruan - Yungaru - Yungartan

No 1 shows the marriage & children of two Yungeru brothers.
No 2 shows the marriage & children of a Yungeru man & his sister.
Under female descent the children of Yungeru are always
Wittaru & Wittaruan - therefore all the children of the
Yungeru class should be regarded as class brothers & sisters and
between them marriage is forbidden - while on the other hand under female descent the children of a man
and his sister must be of different class names

[Left margin:]
See note under
Marital Relations

If the mother
is older than her
sister but if younger
it would be "Murrang"
