Ancestor List for Anderson Cooper ahnenlist
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Anderson's Trusted List to access it. Please login.

Compact Family Tree
This alternative tree view is packed with eight generations — up to 254 ancestors — along with birth and death dates and locations. The downside is that it's not a conventional tree format; it may take a couple minutes to orient yourself.

Descendants descendants
This view isn't linked because it contains private information.

DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Anderson's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Anderson gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Anderson's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
This tool helps you take things a step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Anderson's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

Dynamic Tree
The dynamic tree expands to include an unlimited number of generations of parents and children. You can zoom in or out and pan around for the perfect view as you browse.

Family Group Sheet family group sheet
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Anderson's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.

Family List
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Anderson and Queen Elizabeth II? This Connection Finder includes relationships through marriage, so it is not a genealogical cousin calculator like our Relationship Finder, but it's a fun way to illustrate how closely we're all connected.

Images of Anderson photos
Here are photographs and source images for Anderson. They are not linked for privacy reasons.

Index of Coopers
This page shows all the Coopers on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Anderson. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Cooper DNA Connections and COOPER G2G.

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
This view parallels the pedigree chart above but it is optimized for printing. It can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form at a family gathering. It is not linked here because it contains private information.

Profile of Anderson
The profile page is the central place for organizing and viewing information and sources on an individual. This tree & tools page is a supplement to it. Whenever you see Anderson's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Cooper-7606 is Anderson's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Cooper-7606 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Anderson and the other person. It will name the relationship, e.g. "third cousin twice removed," and show the trail of connections to a common ancestor. Although not everyone on WikiTree shares common ancestors, finding and connecting them is our ultimate goal. See the Relationship Finder Quick Links to check for relationships to US presidents, Mayflower passengers, Magna Carta Sureties and more.

Share Tree on Facebook shareable tree
Download and share an attractive family tree image. This is a great way to elicit information and photo sharing from family and old friends. You might be surprised at who replies. The "Wikid Shareable Tree" is another option. You can just copy and paste the URL into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Anderson's family names. Many members share its URL via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

If you're a blogger who's writing a post about Anderson or have a Cooper family website or surname website you can include one of these widgets to illustrate his tree.

Privacy Setting privacy

Tests of Anderson's DNA

This will automatically create connections on the profiles of Anderson's relatives where the test may be useful for confirming relationships. It's very valuable for advanced genealogy. To add tests you need to be on Anderson's Trusted List.
