A witness to a document is simply indicating that they saw you sign the document and that they believe you are who you say you are. They are not saying anything about what is in the document. They do not have to be related to you in any way.

Witnesses to wills cannot be beneficiaries to the will and need to be old enough to execute their own legal documents (meaning of age and of sound mind).
