I also heard from my closest match a couple of days ago, predicted to be a
2nd or 3rd cousin. He turned out to be a 2nd cousin once removed (his
great-grandmother was a sister of my grandfather). His research has been focused
on his straight paternal line, but maybe I have a new recruit to help look
for our shared brick wall.
