Inviting a guest to your ancestry tree
« on: Monday 14 September 20 17:45 BST (UK) »
I see you can invite someone to be a guest to your tree, by using their user name (I assume if they have an ancestry account), or using their email (I assume if they don't have an account).  However, in the second situation,  to access my tree in Ancestry, does your invitee have to have an ancestry account??  And can it be non payable, as with people who can do dna tests, and access their results, without a normal subscription?

Sorry I always make things sound more complicated! Hope you get my question.  I have a nephew who I would like to invite, but don't know what I need to tell him about accessing my tree!!!

If the recipient is not a subscribed member then they can create a free registered guest account.

Once they have the guest account, you can send them an email invite, they click on the link, sign in and view your tree.

If you use the "send to an email address" invite, when the person opens the resulting email, they will see a "Click Here to see" button.

Clicking there will direct them to a place where they will be guided through setting up their free guest account.

Of course Ancestry will try to "upsell" things, because they always do.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
