David Cooper has completed the England Project's Orphan Trail.


Born in Bedfordshire, England, now retired to Carcassonne, France, having worked in London England and New York, USA. Been doing genealogy, which I take seriously, for many years, but no experience of WikiTree which I don't find particularly intuitive. I'm getting there slowly. But there does seem to be a load of unsourced garbage downloaded via gedcom, which reduces the value of the site.

Hello David,

I made a FreeSpace page of the Hostes mentioned in the registers of the Dutch Reformed Church in London. If I add a person of this list, I will create a link to the person's profile on this page.

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hello David, and welcome to WikiTree! The initial email from us has helpful links that will get you started on WikiTree, which is not like any genealogy site you’ve ever used.

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!

When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to become a member of WikiTree. Just add a Tag for each family surname or location you are researching. Then click the “Post Tags and Volunteer” button. (information on Tags can be found at One of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership.

WikiTree is an exciting and growing community and we are really glad you decided to join us.
