We have a tree on Ancestry and my wife has invited a cousin The Heard tree to view our tree and we can view hers.

My wife was searching Family trees and noticed a public tree The Heard tree , she entered it and was shocked to find that all our family was on view.
Is it because we are allowed to view her tree that we can see everybody ?
Can anybody else see living persons ?

If you have an Ancestry account can you please look and tell me what you can see.

We are now relieved , I thought that is the way it should be but was not sure.
