I can’t see Private Messaging anywhere. Why don’t I have access to this feature?

You should have a Private Messaging inbox if you have a Findmypast family tree, have received a tree-to-tree hint and are currently on a Starter, Plus or Pro free trial or subscription. Once you receive a message from someone, you'll see an envelope icon.

The feature is only available on at the moment. It will arrive on, and soon.


If you don’t have a family tree, you can start one. You can subscribe or upgrade here.
