How do i enable family viewing and sharing of my information, to other members.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
It all depend on what you mean by, "... family viewing on my tree, and sharing of information ..."
ANY ,"Registered", User/Patron, with their OWN 'FamilySearch' Account, can 'see' the "Deceased" Ancestors in one's (ie. your) "Ancestral" Lines, in "Family Tree", of 'FamilySearch'.
NO ,"Registered", User/Patron, with their OWN 'FamilySearch' Account, can 'see' the "Living" individuals/persons, in one's (ie. your) "Ancestral" Lines, in "Family Tree", of 'FamilySearch'; as, they reside in the "Private Spaces" of one's (ie. your) account.
That Said ...
When one is dealing/working with OTHER Users/Patrons (INCLUDING one's IMMEDIATE Family members), one can "Enable" what is called "Relationship Viewing"; which, enables TWO (x2) Users/Patrons the ability to 'see' if there is a (Direct) "Relationship" between them, in "Family Tree", 'FamilySearch'; but, it will NOT list/should "Living" person, in such cases, just a 'Place Holder' (ie. Mother; Father; etc).
Here is a "Knowledge Article", in 'FamilySearch':
As an aside ...
One way to allow Family, viewing, and sharing, is to ensure that Family member ALL have their OWN 'FamilySearch' Account.
Once ALL Family members have their OWN 'FamilySearch' Account, it is just a matter of each Family member ADDING the "Living" individuals/persons that connect/link you together - and, 'Yes', those "Living" individuals/persons WILL be "Duplicates", that is NECESSARY (and, O.K.).
Basically, by each Family member ADDING the "Living" individuals/persons that connect/link you together, that will "Build" a "Bridge", that will allow you all, to connect/link, once you come to your FIRST "Common" DECEASED Ancestor.
I hope, that this may help/assist, somewhat.
Here an old 'standby' of mine, that I have previously proffered on occasion ...
Most new (and, some old) Users/Patrons DO NOT understand the basic 'nature' and 'premise' of "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', when they join in.
Please let me explain ...
[ And, please bear with me; as, I am VERY 'Verbose' ... that is my 'style' ... ]
We do not have our OWN "Tree" in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
We ONLY have "Branches" (ie. Ancestral" lines), 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 'On-Line' "Websites" (eg. "Ancestry_com"; or "MyHeritage_com"; or, the like); and/or, 'standalone' personal (computer) programmes (eg, the OLD, now no longer supported, "PAF"; or, "Ancestral Quest"; or, the like).
We DO NOT have "Private"/"Personal" 'Trees' in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch' like other 'On-Line' "Websites"; and/or, 'standalone' personal (computer) programmes.
We do not even, own; or, manage; and, are NOT even responsible for, the "Deceased" individuals/persons in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
And, most importantly ...
We DO NOT even, own; or, manage; and, are NOT even responsible for, Our OWN "Deceased" Ancestors/Family/Relatives 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".
In fact, you can ONLY see "Deceased" individuals/persons 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 'FamilySearch' 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, "give permission" to "Share", the "Living" individuals/persons in their own "Private Spaces" with/between other/another User(s)/Patron(s).
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 are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch' in regard to "Private Spaces" and "Living" individuals/persons:
Here is a good place to start, with how things work in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch' (and, other programmes as well):

I hope, that all this may also help/assist.
where do you look to change permission and let family members look and adjust.
As, I indicated, in my first 'Comment':
Just remember, the OTHER User/Patron (be they, Family member or not) MUST also "Enable", that "Relationship Viewing", for such to work - ie. must be enabled on both, Your end; and, that of the Other person.
From one's "Settings" ...
To "Enable", that "Relationship Viewing", one must now, go to the THIRD 'Tab'; which is "Permissions" ...
Being the URL:
The other place, to "Enable", that "Relationship Viewing", is still through selecting another User's/Patron's "Contact Name" ...
Result when selected ...
