Kathryn Posted October 6, 2012 Share Posted October 6, 2012 (edited) I received an email last night that I don't know how to respond to. Years ago, I was really into genealogy and I have lots of information/requests for information out there on the Internet. I assume this guy came across an old post. Now, at first glance, I was extremely excited because I was never able to find out much on my paternal grandfather's family for a lot of reasons. Nobody in the family knows anything, even those that were born there, I don't read/speak Ukrainian, they were from a small village, and I didn't have money to pay a Ukrainian researcher/translator. To see that this guy's family was from the same small village was exciting. But, then I'm thinking that since he's not saying "hey, we're related!'" he's probably looking for money. I looked up his email address on Facebook. He seems to be a "real" person. So, how do I figure out what he wants from this and what exactly he's offering to do? Email is below. Title line was "hello from Ukraine" My grandparents are from ______, _____ region, Ukraine. I can find out some information for you about your distant relatives, if you are still interested about this information. Looking forward for your respond, His Name, Ukraine Edited December 13, 2012 by Kathryn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
