I have 3rd and more distant cousins on my list of matches at Ancestry, but if I didn't know what I know and who I know, we might not know.

I met my Catholic 2nd Cousins in 1979 (one gr-uncle married a Catholic); my mother didn't tell me that the Esther Fitzgerald we picked up to visit another cousin was actually a cousin herself. My mother said she was a friend of Florence's, not a Ruslander by birth. So I know a bunch of them who tested, and some other 3rd and 4th cousins in my list, but you and / or the match needs to know.

My closest match other than my nephew (not his son however), is in no way we can determine related to me. Go figuire.
