Re: Relatives stopped responding!!! #general

Never give up. Maybe even call them. In my case I owe email but have gone through
periods of busy activity. I keep coming back to my email though.

I am becoming so frustrated, and am wondering whether others have had the
same experience. I made a contact on my family, albeit a distant
relative, and was so excited that we might be able to put some of the
pieces of my grandfather's family together, and actually locate living
relatives. After two email exchanges, he stopped responding, and
although I made several attempts to reconnect, my emails were ignored.

Several weeks ago, I made another contact, thanks to a few of you who
were kind enough to make phone calls for me in Israel, and although
there seemed to be genuine excitement on the other end on behalf of a
granddaughter of a man who is also a distant relative of my
grandfather's family, that has fizzled also.

Have any of you had the same experience, and if so, how do you deal with
it? At what point do you just throw your hands up in the air and accept
the fact that even though there is information you know is out there,
and which would help immensely in reconstructing family trees, that you
just aren't going to receive it, and therefore may never succeed in
tracking down lost relatives???? Leslie Weinberg
