As per the Hindu Marriage Act you can't marry one whose ancestry is fifth or less in father's line and third or less in mother's line. As in the present case, it is less than five generations as the woman is less than five generation relation from your father's side. Hence , you both fall within the prohibited degree of relationship and are sapinda of each other.
