This always gives me so much trouble! Let me see if I've got this right. 

So far as a {lor} is concerned, can you distill it down to the rule that the {lor} is the child of an opposite-sex sibling? 
your mother's brother has a {lor}, your father's sister has a {lor}, 
if you are a male, your sister has a {lor}, if you are female, your brother has a {lor}? 
This applies to children of the siblings of you or your parents.

(And {tey'} is used for the children of same-sex siblings).
