Mike, a first cousin once removed, recently contacted me for some information on the line of ancestry we share. I was absolutely delighted that a member of the next, a/k/a “younger,” generation is interested in our family history. He is now the recipient of a large packet of material of our ancestors.
In reading it over, he discovered a close friend of his is also a second cousin once removed. This was the first he knew of their being related. Just one of the many serendipitous moments in sharing genealogy!
