I normally don't believe in karma but sometimes I really wish something would really come back and bite them in the butt big time!!
If the shoes were on the other foot we would have at least let them know that Aunt Dorothy died! My sister found out on ancestry.com. Pretty sad when we have to find out from a website that family has died.
I'm a firm believer in karma, and somehow, some way, your brother's actions will come back on him, three-fold. And I'm also sure he'll blame you when they do, because he doesn't believe that he's done anything wrong.
If I were you, I'd maintain contact with your dad's family members on your own - sending cards, letters, etc. Even if you don't get responses from them (but I expect after a while, you will). Never
say a negative thing about your brother, Ideally, say nothing at all about him. Don't go on the defensive, or try to explain the lies he's spreading. If someone asks about the things he's said, tell them the truth - while saying nothing negative about your brother. After a while, it should become apparent to others what he is doing without you having to say a word, and if he ever accuses you of retaliation, you can look him in the eye and tell him you did no such thing.
It's hard, but rewarding, to take the high road when others try to drag you down the low road with them.
