Can you give me guidance?

If you are referring to information attached to living persons, that is why she cannot see all that you are adding. She should be able to see all of the information you attach to any deceased individuals.2
FamilySearch protects the privacy of living so anyone that you enter as living cannot be seen by anyone else. But you can both add a copy of living individuals to connect to the same deceased individuals in the tree and then you can work together on those deceased persons and lines.2
We currently do not have a way for a family group to share a private space and work together on it.
Multiple users can enter a record for the same living person into their own private space.
- Each record has a different ID number.
- Each record is visible only to the user who entered it.
- When you change a record in your private space, it does not change the same person's record in another user's private space.
- After a person dies, family members need to make all separate records in their private spaces public and then merge them.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Further to what has already been proffered ...
For ("Living") Users/Patrons of "Family Tree' of 'FamilySearch' (including yourself) their PID is, unique to them; and, can ONLY bee 'seen' by them, in THEIR 'FamilySearch' Account ...
"Living" Users/Patrons of "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch' ARE just like, in fact, just the SAME as, "Living" individuals/persons, in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', that are recorded in our "Private Spaces", of our individual/personal 'FamilySearch' Accounts - they can ONLY be 'seen' by the User/Patron who created them; or, in case of a "Living" User/Patron, by them.
As such ...
For "Living" Users/Patrons, just like "Living" individuals/persons, we HAVE to "Create" a ("Living") DUPLIACTE of them in OUR own respective 'FamilySearch' Accounts, in other words within our respective "Ancestral" Lines in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
That said ...
'Yes' ... they WILL be DUPLIACTES ... but, that is O.K.; and, a necessary feature for "Privacy".
You and your ("Living") Family members (and, extended Family) have to "Build" a "Bridge" of the "Living" individuals/persons (As "Living" DUPLICATES) that connect/link you together, in your respective 'FamilySearch' Accounts ...
Once, you and your ("Living") Family members (and, extended Family) have ALL "Built" that "Bridge" of the "Living" (individuals/persons) that connect/link you ALL together (As "Living" DUPLICATES); then, when you ALL come to your FIRST Common "Deceased" Ancestor, your "Ancestral" Lines will connect/link together into one ...
I hope this helps, somewhat.
You and your niece could email each other the information you have added to living members of your tree.0
Personally, I feel it is inappropriate to make person pages for anyone living; that should be their own perogative. So, once I learned that pages for living persons are neither required nor necessary, just suggested to help newcomers get started, I made placeholder pages with no personal detail, not even names.0
