¡Por fin! norteño has the exact correct answer. No complications, no necessity of tracking convoluted family trees! Thank you norteño!!!!
Then there are the degrees of removal: If your hermanos carnales have a children, those children are your sobrinos carnales. If those sobrinos carnales have children, those children are your sobrinos carnales - once removed. Etc., etc., etc. Sorry, but I don't know what the correct/legal term is in Spanish for degrees of removal.
Important NOTE: In México, your hermanos carnales are ALL the children of your mother, regardless of who the father is. Children of your father with some other mother are technically/¿legally? NOT your hermanos carnales. In the U.S. (English-speaking countries?) only the children of your mother AND your father are considered full siblings (hermanos carnales).
