Direct Messaging Shows up live in the FamilySearch Family Tree
The very long anticipated direct messaging showed up in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree. This allows those signed into the Family Tree to send messages directly to those who do not allow their email address or other contact information to show up in the program.
In this case, sending a message to "unknown4470317" isn't going to work. If the person named is no longer alive or the contributor is something other than a real person, there is really no one out there to respond. But if the problem is simply a lack of a way to contact the person, an instant message might help.
