💬FamilySearch Chat is Now Live!!!
FamilySearch Chat is a new messaging system on FamilySearch.org that is now available. It replaces the old FamilySearch messaging system and, like chat tools you may have used elsewhere, FamilySearch Chat enables real-time conversation with any FamilySearch users signed in at the same time as you. You can still access the Messages pages by going to the direct link: https://www.familysearch.org/messages/ where you can download all messages associated with your profile.
During the initial import of messages from the old to the new system, the first message is shown with the remainder of the messages as a "reply" or "thread" with the first. If it seems like messages are missing, start with the first message and see if you notice any "replies" and click on that to view if there are any missing messages. A reminder that only messages after November 2021 were imported over. Any other messages will remain on the old system until 31 December 2023 and can be downloaded using the link above.
Take a moment to jump on and chat, try the User Connections feature and search for a friend or colleague, and say hello.
