I've contacted about 5 people who I have found related to me or some other relationship and they are NOT interested in hearing more.

Some seem embarrassed, one maybe exposed, others just want to ignore the past...

Of course these people have their right to avoid, ignore, or skip the past so - "I let them go" and feel a loss for me that I am denied this history and these relationships.



Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Some of my contacts have replied to my messages and others haven't. After reading this link I at least know I'm not alone! Frustrating to find a connection and not get a hello back.

How to Communicate with Your DNA Matches the Proper Way

If you have delved into the interesting world of DNA testing for genealogy, you have probably seen pages of DNA matches. These are people who share segments of your own DNA, and who, therefore, likely share one or more ancestors with you, as well. These ancestors may be recent, or so far back it will take both you and your match a bit of research (or, a lot of it) to figure out who the common ancestor was. Of course, you can only research together if your matches will communicate with you.
