Michelle Fanwick

Good Morning,
Last year in my Rosh Hashanah letter/Card I sent every relative (about 200
plus) a family tree and told them how we were related. I enclosed contact
info for my self and asked them to let me know if I omitted any information
or there were any errors. I was very lucky and I received a lot of
responses. I try to contact everyone twice a year, I send a picture of my
family and then they know who we are and I think that makes them more likely
to respond to my inquiries. I also email pictures to new finds and I always
tell them how we are connected, before I ask for information. I also thank
them for the information that I'm looking forward to receiving.

Good luck and Happy New Year,
