Right, like they were first cousins as well.
However, since the minor differences between worlds mean that
sometimes people's analogues must die at different times or
not have children or something, the genealogy of two worlds
cannot be identical so maybe it's more like your "soul" exists
in other worlds and frequently is born to the analogues of your
parents, but if they aren't available it might get born to
someone similar. So that would explain things like how in one
world you have a sibling that you don't in another.
