I have a Bradford 3rd cousin match. I believe that is my only third cousin match that is that close and it is solid. We know each other and I have many, many sources for his Bradford and mine. The county is also well aware of the family and there is a mountain named for our family. I have donated old photos to several organizations for the family including some on the property and some with the school for the area. Two historians and a well known librarian have also provided information to both of us and it matches. I have photos of his family member and mine together with their parents and it is labeled. So it is possible to get a good match. I hope this encourages you.
