You can only share your tree with a paying member

If your B-I-L is one such.....find him in 'search all trees' and give him the required permission.

No-one can view another person's tree without having been granted permission to do so

My brother in law has registered on here to see my family tree, but we cannot seem to find each other. Is there a way I can find members on here without them having started their own family tree?
