Dear <Your Relative's Name>,

<Insert paragraph of family news here.>

You may know that I am gathering information about our family history. I am currently working on the <surname> branch of the family, and I wonder if you could give me any information about them. In particular, I am looking for <short list of information that you need, such as names or birth dates of specific people>.

I appreciate you taking the time to help me out. If you would like, I would be happy to send you the family information that I have already collected for this branch.

Say hello to <name> for me!

<Warm regards,>

<Your Name>
