New-found “cousin”

When it is hot outdoors (and indoors), I gravitate to the computer. Today, I’ve been “climbing the family tree” in someone else’s yard. Only one surname in common (“Bowman”) when I exchanged messages with a man regarding a disputed death date. Ancestry tells us if we are related (if each of us has taken DNA tests). Ancestry told me we were not related but I was related to someone in his tree. For several hours, last night, I was browsing hundreds of DNA cousins. Long story short, “Traxler” folks are in both our trees (my grandmother was a “Traxler”). ~~ I love researching, and documenting, “extended family.”
