If they are a paying member you can open your tree to them

Ask them in person/by normal email for the details for one of their tree entries.

Name as it has been entered
Year of Birth
Place of birth as it has been entered.

When you have these details, search all trees.
Pick the one where the tree owner has the same first name as your friend and send a message through GR. You can allow access to your tree at that point.

Alternatively you can give the details of one of yours and let them initiate contact

Remember that they have to be subscribing members to be able to view other peoples trees and make first contact
