Re: Family curse or misunderstanding?
In Response To: Family curse or misunderstanding? ()
Here a suggestion. Continue with your efforts in planning the reunion. Of course you are going to get the cold shoulder from some because of the misunderstanding but continue on. Don't let that stop you because you WILL have a number of family members interested in knowing their family. Once the relunctant ones hear that the reunion took place and everyone had a good time, then hopefully all or most of the reluntant ones will start to gain an interest.
Maybe send out a letter of plea to family members asking them to stop this family curse that's likely based on a misunderstanding. Seems to me that if your grandfather wanted to sever ties with his brothers and their families, he would have never mentioned that he had any brothers at all, or he definitely would not have made that statement to you.
Just my 2 cents,
