Just a tip ..if you are using an old Browser say XP IE 8 you need to UNCHECK compatibility view.....go to tools you will see it there .

I have to remember to do the same when I work on my tree.

Compatibility ON for the boards so you have your Emoticons and OFF for the tree work .
You should be able to see trees available for you to see in sets of ten...the more trees you have available to you the more sets of ten you have all marked along the bottom of the of trees available for me to see.

Only way I can get it to work for me ...I use XP IE8.

sue :-D

Go to your tree, just under your name it says "View other trees". Click on that and you get the list of trees you can see.

I used to be able to click on shared trees. Now I can't find out who I have access to without going through all the people i have cantacted. This is so frustrating and I feel you have made things a lot more complicated than they were. Why can't you leave things alone. Don't mend whats not broken. Frustrated Joan
