If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.

SOURCE: I have loaded my Singer 626 sewing machine bobbin properly, and when I try to bring the lower thread up by turning the wheel, nothing comes up. I do hold the upper thread taunt, so it can 'grab
Make sure your needle is correct for the machine and make sure it is fully inserted and undamaged.
you just hold onto the thread... you don't need to hold it taut.
