I have been guilty of not checking the “other” message box for as long as a year or two. Why? Because I simply forgot about it. A reminder in one of the groups I belong to has had me checking it more often.
This latest message was from a cousin on my Dad’s side of the family and in two days I have chatted with him and exchanged phone numbers and emails. He has shared photos and newspaper articles with me, along with dates and a letter from another cousin dating back to 1938.
I’ll tell you right here and now. I will NEVER forget that “other” box again.
You can find the “Other” messages by clicking on “Messages” in the left hand column of your home page. Yours may be in a different location on your list. I have moved my messages so they are right under News Feed.
Click on the word “Messages” and that will bring up all your messages. Up near the top, click on “Other.” This is where messages go if you are not currently friends with someone.

That’s it. That’s all there is to it. Maybe there won’t be any messages there for a day, a week, a month or longer. But, you can bet I will be checking on a regular basis.
I wish you lots of cousin connections.
