relations


relations
Family connections. Business, professional, or social connections. When used in wills, the word is ordinarily construed as including relatives by consanguinity, and excluding relatives by affinity, unless a contrary intention is manifested. The term "relations" or "blood relations" in wills generally means such persons as take under the statute regarding the distribution of estates of intestates, but it may include those who actually are related by blood although they could not inherit from him because of the disqualification of illegitimacy. 57 Am J1st Wills § 1391. As to who are "relations" with the meaning of an anti-lapse statute, see Anne: 19 ALR 2d 1159; 57 Am J1st Wills § 1442. See degrees of kinship; industrial relations; relatives.
