Relationships are not always absolute

Just because someone is listed as someone's child in a census doesn't mean they actually were their child. Could they have been a step-child or a neighbor child who was taken in? And if person A is person B's "cousin" the exact biological relationship may not be as simple as one thinks. Their parents could have been siblings or half-siblings or the relationship could have even more distant.
