I would focus on sharing the details of ancestors who are gone, who would be the link between his branch and yours. Establishing which ancestor is shared, has nothing to do with anyone currently alive.

I would like some advice on how much information to share with someone, unknown to me but distantly connected. After discovering shared relatives via another site, I contacted this person. He has asked for birth, death, marriage, children information about my branch of the family. I am certain the connection is valid, but I am uncertain the protocol for sharing information, particularly for living relatives. While I well understand the desire to fill in as many blanks as possible, I'm not completely comfortable with sharing these details for living persons. I am certain the connection is a valid one, and I want to be helpful, but... How have you handled this situation?
