The court ruled that Milan Lukic, the leader of the White Eagles paramilitary force, was the ringleader of the attacks.
He herded about 130 women, children and elderly men in to two houses - both in or near the eastern Bosnian town of Visegrad - before setting fire to them.
Sredoje Lukic was found guilty of aiding and abetting one of the house fires.
In their defense, cousins Lukic said they were not present in the town where killings have allegedly taken place at the time of the massacre.
Both men had pleaded not guilty to all charges and said they were not present in the eastern Bosnian town of Visegrad at the time of the crimes.
Defense lawyers had requested acquittals.
