If you look in old bibles, the "prohibited degrees" are somewhere to be found. Wasn't it in the Old Testament - Leviticus 18 rings a bell - "though shalt not uncover the nakedness etc ..."

Despite this, my great, great grandfather married his deceased wife's niece, but they went away to Liverpool for the ceremony. Make of that what you will.
