Hi everyone, its been a while since I have been a regular user of GR, I seem to have 'lost' the trees that I had permission to view. Do we have to re-request permission? The new version of GR is like a visit to a new planet - one I'm not at ease with.

No they are still there.
Go to your tree, under your name is View Other Trees.
Select that then select the tab View Other Trees and a list will appear.

When you call your tree up, under the name at the top should be 'View other trees'. Click this and the list should appear.

You aren't the only one who doesn't like the new tree setup.

It could also be the person may even have removed your permission to view their tree or their tree is no longer on here.
