I know a family who knew one or more members of my
family well. First I asked questions like:
what can you tell me about "Abe" - what you remember?
(i.e. personality, interests/hobbies, etc.)
and then more specific questions recently like:
do you know if "Abe" had a family prior to moving to
Oregon?

This same family sent me (unsolicited) a family
holiday photo, detailing everyone's names in the
picture, but when I asked specifics about
relationships, etc. I got the cold shoulder.

They want to me to ask other people, but I don't
anyone else (at this point) who knew these family
members.
Makes me wonder if there's some "secret" they're
sharing.
Does anyone have suggestions as to how to get around
this?

Thank you
