Re: Reaching out to family #ukraine

Write, then call. Send something of interest/value to them (partial family
tree, etc.) Some people will not write back just because it takes too much
time or trouble. Some will not call for the same reason, or because they
feel they do not have accurate or complete information (full names, exact
dates, etc.) and will disappoint you. Many will not call just because they
do not want to pay the LD phone bill, especially older people who still see
long distance calls as a huge luxury. Call them and put it on your own
dime. Most people will talk to you if they know it is for real and not some
solicitation. Good luck.
