For any records for people that are deceased - both you and her (and all million users of FamilySearch) all have access to see the same records in the system - they just need to search on them. (it is a single database that we all collaboratively work on)
if you are more focused on records for people who are living - that is a bit more complicated - because normally only you can see such entries for the ones you have entered into the system. But there is a "helper mode" that allows one user to sort of "proxy" in as a another user - and see things as they do - with their permission.
I can get you more info about the helper mode if that is your need.
My aunt wants to see the Same Tree that I built because she doesn’t want to rebuild the same tree from record by record. I collected and edited all our ancestors so for her it would be unnecessary if I could let her connect to mine. Is it understandable? English is not my mother language
what is your native language?
for anyone you have entered into the system who is deceased - your aunt can see those records. She just needs to search on them.
It is one massive database - any record you enter for anyone who is deceased - anyone else can see - if they just do a "FIND" and locate the person.
can you give me a couple names and dates from your family tree - of someone who is deceased - along with their birth date - and I will see if I can locate them.
Hungarian she can find anybody but she doesn’t want to look them up piece by piece. I did it already, I thought I can share my tree and ancestors with her somehow
right - but if they are all connected - she just needs to find one - and then she can navigate the family tree from there on . - she just needs to BOOKMARK a main person.
you can share the family - simply by sharing with her the ID of the main person in the tree (a deceased person)
she looks up that main person (and bookmarks the page) and then from then on she just has to go to the bookmark.
each person has a Person ID in the system - it is usually next to the name such as 1X4K-6FU
and in the FIND OPTION there is a TAB that allows for searching by ID
I can send you a screen shot if you need.
if I want to share my family tree with you - I can just share with you the link as follows:
and then you can navigate the entire family tree .

also please note - -women should be entered with their maiden name and not their married name.
Short answer: NO.
We do not have our OWN "Tree" in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch".
We ONLY have "Branches", that are interconnected, in this SINGLE "One" World "Tree", for all of us, that is "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch".
"Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" is NOT like "Ancestry.com" or the like.
We DO NOT have "Private"/"Personal" 'Trees' in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch", like other "Web" Sites; and/or, 'standalone' personal programmes.
We do not even, own; or, manage; and, are NOT even responsible for, the "Deceased" individuals/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch".
"Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" is built on a "Open Edit" Platform - hence, why any registered User/Patron can "Edit" (ie. Add, Delete; and/or, Change) ANY "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch".
You can certainly "Merge"/"Combine" any "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" with another "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch", regardless of who the User/Patron was that initially created those "Deceased" individuals/persons; as, they DO NOT reside with the User/Patron who initially created them - they are "Public".
If fact, you can ONLY see "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch"; except, with this 'rider', that you can ALSO only see "Living" individual/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" that YOU created; as, they reside in your "Private Spaces".
No other User/Patron can see ANY "Living" individuals/persons that were created by another User/Patron; as, they ONLY reside in the "Private Spaces" of the User/Patron who created them.
We CANNOT even see the ACTUAL Record in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearchc" of our IMMEDIATE Family (eg. Spouse; Children; Parents; Siblings; ETC; Etc; etc) if they are "Living"; and, they have their own "FamilySearch" Account.
Of course, you can create your "Living" Family members; and, record them in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch"; but, they will ONLY be seen by you:
- You cannot "Share" them with any other User/Patron.
- You cannot "Merge"/'Combine" them with any other "Living" individual/person residing in the "Private Spaces" of another User//Patron.
There is CURRENTLY no mechanism in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" for Users/Patrons, to "Share"; or, as you suggest, "give permission" to "Share", the "Living" individuals/persons in their own "Private Spaces" with/between other/another User/Patron.
There are a myriad of "Privacy" Laws within the many various Countries and Unions throughout the World - it is a nightmare to negotiate.
"Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" is used in many Countries and Unions throughout the World; and, as such, must adhere to the myriad of "Privacy" Laws throughout the World.
Hence, "Privacy" is one of the reasons that we cannot "Share" the "Living" individuals/persons in our own "Private Spaces" - it is NOT the ONLY reason; but, certainly has a bearing on the matter.
Another factor is that such would have to be 'Coded'/'Programmed' into the Programme that is "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch".
'Yes', these "Living" individuals/person in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" WILL, in fact, in many (most) cases will be "Duplicated" - unfortunately a necessary situation that currently cannot be avoided.
I know that there are "Duplicates" of the "Living" ME - at least, one for my Wife and each of our Children, not to mention my other ("Living") extended Family members.
Here is a good place to start, with how things work in "Family Tree" of "FamilySearch" (and, other programmes as well):
Introducing The Family History Guide
The Family History Guide
I hope this helps, to put things into perspective ...
Thanks a lot!
if you provide me with a name and birth date - I can tell you what the bookmark is.
Ok thanks I will try!
so based on what I shared with you
see if you can copy and paste the web address of your family tree to me and I can see your tree.
yes - thats how you can share
How did you do this landscape link?
To Dennis J Yancey: How did you make the link to your Family Tree? You posted the link and I went and was able to look at your family tree, but if we want to make a link so someone can look at our Family trees, how do we do that?
Do we just type the URL at the top of the page?
just copy and paste the url (you can type it in - but much easier to copy and paste)
Thank you very much. Would that give them just a screen shot, or would someone else that I sent the link to be able to move through the Family Tree, and change to other pages like Person, etc? Would they need to have a Family Search account to do this? Would they be able to make changes?
that is not a screen shot
rather it places them in the same place in the database that YOU are looking at
and allows them to navigate the tree just like you do.
note that this type of logic applies to just about any page - this is not unique just to FamlySearch.
Joe, all you need to do is copy the web address and paste that into an email or post. This is the web address for my ancestor, Joel Hill Johnson:
