In a word- no- no way...at least online.

You could get your cousin to provide you with a GEDCOM and then download a GEDCOM of your online tree, input them into a genealogy program on your computer, merge them, remove the duplicates, and then create a new GEDCOM and upload it creating a new online tree.

That said, most experienced genealogist advise against copying *anything* from one online tree to another as there is no way to tell how accurate the data or the sourcing(if any!) is.
