You have to enter all your people in that line until you reach the common ancestor
Hi Stephanie.  Could you possibly provide a little more explanation about what you're trying to do?  Normally we only merge things when there are two profiles on the site for the same person, and I'm guessing that's probably not the issue here.  When you say your 12th cousin is on WikiTree, I assume that means he has a profile on the site (and is perhaps a living person who is also a member?)  If you're just trying to show your connection to the person, then I agree with Eddie -- you would do that by building both of your ancestral lines back as far as the common ancestor.  That might be a fair bit of work that will take some time for a cousin that distant, but if you know it's a 12the cousin, then presumably you have enough info to do it..
i was going to put him in but have now sent him a request i had a tree on genes reunited from me to him and the connection is back in abt 1500' but unfortunately it disappeared and i had over 150 thousand names in it so kind of frustrating maybe if i send him my email as he sent me his
