Sangraal has a group specifically set up for Ancestor Veneration. Have you looked at some of what he has up? I believe he even has a suggestion for how to communicate with the ancestors there.
Beyond that, I have to wonder what you're looking for. What kind of relationship are you looking to establish with your ancestors? If you're looking for a verbal exchange, I would say that's really, really rare. If, on the other hand, you are simply looking for the emotional connection and reassurance that they are there and willing to look out for you, that's just a matter of being open to them letting you know.
