Either find them on your contacts list, and use the link from that, or...

Go to your tree.
Under your tree name is 'view other trees' - click on that.
In the middle of the screen a box called 'Tree Dashoard' will open
There are 2 tabs - my trees, & Trees shared with me.
Click on the 2nd and start to type the name where it says 'Search Tree name here'

Alternatively you can scroll through all the names on the Dashboard of the trees open to you. They are arranged alphabetically by first name, with 10 names to a page.
You may have to use the scroll bar on the right of the Tree Dashboard, or change pages by clicking on the other page numbers at the bottom of it.
