How do you access other family trees once you have permission from the tree owner?

Point to Family Tree Heading and click on my tree.

When your tree opens, under your board name at top it says view other trees click on that then select trees that have been shared with me . Find the tree owner you want and click on their name and their tree should open to you .

Another way to access the family trees of others.

Click on "Messages"

From the drop down list select "My contacts"

Find the contact whose tree you want to view. Under the heading "Tree" if there is a tick next to "view" it means you will be able to see their tree. Simply click on View and their tree will open.
