Sharing trees on Ancestry
« on: Sunday 10 June 18 14:21 BST (UK) »
If you share a tree on ancestry, to an email address and that person has a ancestry membership but no subscription are they limited on what they can see?

Thanks

They can't view the records attached to your tree but can view the tree itself.

Tweedie in Lanarkshire and Co. Down

It depends on the permissions you set for the person you invite. Some can just view, some contribute, some fully edit (lot of trust needed there). You can also set whether they are able to view living people.

Thanks, it was more the records I was interested in whether they would see, thatís annoying that they have to subscribe to see them. Guess I will have to download and send it all as a file instead.
