trying to figure this... and it sounds to me like any kinship would be irrelevant, but i can't swear to that. your grandmother's aunt's niece. let's see if we can figure out what that means LOL. your grandmother's aunt, i THINK, would be your great grandmother's sister. so, your great grandmother's sister had a niece... why would your great grandmother's sister have a niece that your grandmother didn't also have as a niece? unless that niece was only by marriage, meaning the blood relationship would have been with your great grandmother's sister's husband, no to your side of the family. sounds to me like you aren't related at all.
but even if i'm wrong... and if your great grandmother's sister's niece was also your grandmother's niece, that doesn't draw any "cousin line" between the two of you as far as i can tell. granted, it's still early in the morning, and maybe the whole 'grandmother's aunt's niece' is a convoluted and complicated way of saying something that would be much easier described some other way, but off the top of my head i'd say you're probably not related. in ANY case, even if you are related, it's not going to be within any prohibited degrees of kinship, so don't short circuit your brain trying to figure out what isn't an issue :)
