If the form asks for ALL your uncles and first cousins, then list ALL of them even if you "don't keep in touch" with them. If they need information you don't have and can't get (like a date of birth) then just list an age as close as you can get and explain the situation to your BI later.
This seems like kind of a no brainer.
You may not talk to your family but you should at least know who they are or know somebody in teh family who does.
