I've been working on a 'new' branch of my family tree this week and am finding it so hard to get names and dates out of family members who have them, others are really weird about copying birth/marriage/death certificates for me so I don't have to pay $30 per certificate for my own copies.
I'm very giving with the documents and photos I do have, I've spent quite a bit of money getting very old photos restored and digital copies, I've shared these with the same family members who are withholding the info I need.
Semi vent -- also looking for suggestions for extracting this info from them. Tickle it out of them maybe? They live in another country so that'd be an expensive option.
