You are not able to use the PM system until you have made 3 posts - 2 replies to this will do it!

Don't know about the Chat, maybe that has the same criteria.

AND welcome to Rootschat  :)

Hi

Welcome to RootsChat

New members must make 2 posts before they can use the personal message system and I think the same applies to the chat room

Welcome to Rootschat,

If you have found a thread that you're interested in,the best thing to do is to reply on that thread and strike up a conversation and then if you find you have relatives in common,then you will meet the criteria for Personal Messaging.
