Wisconsin Norwegians. Frequently, my grandmother and, less frequently, 
my mother used this term when referring to distant cousins. Distant as 
in, "I know they're related but it's so far away that I don't know the 
exact terminology." My grandmother did use words like third cousin twice 
removed, so I can't imagine how distant a shirttail cousin would have 
been, at least in my family.
