After you have created a Member Tree on Ancestry.com—or had one shared with you—it can be accessed by mousing over Trees in the navigation bar and selecting the family tree you want to view from the drop-down list. This will take you to the Pedigree view for that family tree.

Note: Ancestry Member Trees require an account with Ancestry.com to view—this can be either a paid subscription account, or a free guest account. Users viewing an Ancestry Member Tree via a free guest account will have access to all family tree information (names, dates, etc.), as well as documents and photos uploaded by the tree’s creator, but will not be able to view records and digitized documents attached directly from Ancestry.com databases.
Navigate Via Family View
The highlighted view buttons (see #1 above) let you toggle back and forth between pedigree view and what Ancestry.com calls Family View (pictured here). This family view allows you to see up to three generations of ancestors and two generations of descendants for the selected individual, as well as all of their siblings. To move around the tree, either click and hold to drag the tree around in the main window, or select a different area of the tree in the small navigation window (#2) to navigate directly. Click on the little pedigree symbol next to an individual (#3) to view their ancestors or descendants.
