Re: How Weird Are We? #general


I suspect that with the proliferation of phishing and other scams, many people are leery of strangers who claim to be "family."  It may be better to call or snail mail and it may help to mention right away that you are a genealogy enthusiast who simply wants to contact relatives found through your research.  Even then, there will be folks who are not interested or only marginally interested. I ran into one, a second cousin through the uncle for whom my father is named. She suggested meeting but never followed through, after her son contacted me. It happens.
