My native language is French.
My level in English has been evaluated as C1 (Effective operational proficiency or advanced) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
I have very basic notions of Russian and Dutch.


Isabelle was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!

I was born and raised in a small village ouside the suburbs of Paris, France. My father is from the same village; his mother was Swiss-born. My mother, on the other hand, is a true Fleming from Lille, with lots of Belgian ancestors. See where my ancestors lived.

My family tree was started more than 30 years ago with data from my great-grandparents "livret de famille" - the small booklet the mayor gives you when you get married, which is an official document. I thought my great-great-grandma had an interesting name and that's how I caught the bug.

Salut Isabelle  -thank you for being a member of the Jewish Roots Project! I wanted to let you know about some new things we have going on.

- You can see new tabs at the top of our home page, where you can select topics to view or work on. You can also use our new maintenance categories - feel free to add them to your own family, or any other Jewish Roots profile, or work on the maintenance yourself, such as adding new records to profiles with only a couple sources.

-I'm sending an invitation to join GoogleGroups, which we are re-starting this week. We'll probably do most group chat there, but the most important things will be posted on G2G, which you will be notified about if you follow the jewish_roots tag.

-You can also join Wikitree's discord server, where we have a Jewish Roots chat channel.

-If you have ideas or suggestions for the project, feel free to reply here or send me a message.

Thank you! -Elaine, co-leader for Jewish Roots Project

I admire you and thank you for your work, Isabelle.

Thank you for participating in the 2022 USBH Connecting Challenge and helping us reach 161,603 profiles! We’re going for 250,000 profiles in 2023!

You can see your 2022 total and your all time 2021-2022 total on our tracking spreadsheet.


Bonjour Isabelle, il y a plusieurs personnes qui ont demandé à rejoindre le projet du portail francophone sans réponse. Il fonctionne toujours?


posted by Danielle Liard

En principe il existe mais je ne m'en occupe plus beaucoup. Un peu découragée depuis qu'ils ont refait 10000 pages en anglais et que du coup toutes les traductions sont à refaire... Je suis en vacances actuellement, pensez-vous pouvoir répondre à ces personnes?



je peux leur répondre sur le G2G mais ne peux les ajouter au projet ni les instruire sur la façon de procéder.


Bonnes vacances 😀

Hi Isabelle,

I wrote to you recently as part of the England Project's six-monthly check-in with our project members. I haven't heard back from you. I hope you are well.

If you could please drop me a quick note to confirm whether you are still interested in the project and wish to remain an active member, that would be very helpful.

If we do not hear from you within the next 2 weeks, we will assume you are no longer active in the England Project and remove you from our list of project members. You would be most welcome to re-apply to join the project at a later time by signing-up on the project’s G2G welcome post.

Many thanks!

Maddy, England Project Leader

Hello Isabelle,

The April 2022 Connect-a-Thon is about a week away. It will be from Apr 22-25, 2022. Would you like to participate with the Tree Nuts Team again in this Thon? If you would like to join us, be sure and ANSWER the G2G sign up post. Click ‘Answer this post’ and mention that you want to be on the Tree Nuts team!

We hope you can join us!


P.S. For this event, ‘connecting’ means that you use the add links on a profile created before 22 April to create profiles for parents, siblings, spouses, and children. The goal is not to connect to the main tree, but to add as many linked profiles as possible.

Dear Isabelle,

Thank you for what you're doing with the Disproven Existence sub-project of the Profile Improvement Project. Here's what we're doing with other parts of PIP. You're welcome to join us if you've got extra time.

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team who guide new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team. You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with another Team.

You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile ‘’’from your own watchlist’’’ that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. (When you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID). Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements. You will find more information on the GoogleGroup.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hi Isabelle, on 11 Februari 2022 I sent you an inmail requesting to be added as active co-manager to some protected profiles. I have not heard from you since. If you require more information, please let me know. I will resend you the list of profiles. Kindly, Philip van der Walt
posted by Philip van der Walt
Thanks Isabelle, I'll be busy the coming weeks with the profiles; much appreciated you adding me to the active manager lists.
posted by Philip van der Walt
You've been activated as manager where you were already on the trusted list and added as a manager elsewhere, except for one profile which the France project does not manage. I said I was doing it, of course it's been done. I thought you would get notifications or at least check back.


Hi saw Isabelle, and understood that Isabelle. I did receive notifications and I did check back; I also thanked the France project for adding me to the lists, but you would not receive any such notifications from a non-person profile; that's why I'm thanking you with sincerity now. Once again kind regards, Philip van der Walt

Bonjour Isabelle,

I've been working on a project with our Acadian cousins to provide a source page regarding the French origins of Acadians. As I'm sure you know these have often had a mix of location names in profiles (including parishes, later départements, régions, etc.), which are not only inaccurate for the time but can make people seem to be different when they're not. It's become bigger project than expected - but it's also helping us correct and organize profiles. The latest version is at the following page - and as you can see I've also tied into our resources from the France Project - but let me know if you think there are other things that should be added: Also I sent a message about the France Project Google group. Many thanks! Tyler

Thank you so much for correcting various incorrect names for the Auschwitz concentration camp to KZ Auschwitz, Gau Oberschlesien, Großdeutsches Reich. I always feel uncomfortable seeing countryname Polska or Poland there, and will adopt your location name in future cases!

posted by [Living Terink]
Thank you - I feel it is only correct to use the German location. It's sometimes clumsy to use historic locations but in this case, it tells things as they were.
Bonjour Isabelle. Je suis Français, et je viens de m'inscrire. Je vois que, même sur le Projet France, tout est en anglais. J'ai voulu poster un message sur le forum, j'ai reçu le bandeau suivant : "You need 100 points to create new tags. The following tags are not allowed: raudot". je ne sais pas ce que c'est qu'un tag (chez nous ce sont des dessins sur les murs), ni les autres mots utilisés. Et surtout, il n'y a pas de bouton pour changer de langue. Je crois que je vais vite me lasser de ce site, pourtant intéressant. Bien à vous. JR

Bonjour Jean,

Une partie des pages d'aide a été traduite en français par "des" volontaire(s). Ici Malheureusement, la navigation entre les versions anglaise et internationales a récemment été changée. Pour l'explication des fameux "tags", c'est ici: La page du projet France a été traduite en français également, mais elle n'est hélas pas tout à fait à jour:

Bonjour Isabelle,

J'ai un arbre contenant 130000 personnes. D'une manière générale et à part les ascendance nobles ces informations sont sourcées ou alors notées ccomme "à confirmer" dans mon arbre. Je souhaiterais pouvoir charger un fichier GED, mais je ne veux pas le faire de manière aveugle. En particulier charger des doublons sur l'ascendance noble. Et si je ne le fait pas, comment refaire la jonction avec ceux qui existent déjà sur le site. J'ai beaucoup de branches qui ne sont pas dans wikitree, donc ma contribution serait intéressante. Voir mon arbre sur geneanet .... Je pratique la recherche en ligne sur les AD, l'utilisation des sources dépouillées par les associations de généalogie, la recherche d'actes notariés dans les archives (ce qui m'a permis de progresser sur des informations incomplètes (mariage non filiatifs) dans les registres BMS. Merci de me guider dans ma démarche. Bien cordialement Vincent

Bonjour Vincent,

Désolée pour la réponse tardive; j'étais absente et ai eu quelques difficultés à me mettre à jour. En ce qui concerne les GEDCOM je ne les ai jamais utilisés, mais il existe des pages d'aide (traduites en français) ici: En principe, le système prévoir le raccordement aux branches existantes. Il faut absolument faire le maximum pour éviter la création de doublons ce qui implique de vérifier chaque variante possible du nom de famille. Je vous envoie un autre message séparément.

Hello Isabelle, I notice you changed a category on one of my profiles from

'Category:Killed in Action, France, World War I' to'[Category:Killed in Action, United Kingdom, World War I.' William Henry Haley was an Australian soldier killed in France. He did not die of wounds in the United Kingdom.

Is the 'killed in France' no longer a category? Thanks, Christine

Hello Christine,

Thanks for your note - the "Killed in Action" (and other similar, Died of Wounds, Wounded in Action, etc.) are to be formatted as follows: "Killed in Action, <Country Served>, <War>"). So, the category "Killed in Action, France" exists, but it is reserved to soldiers who were in the French Army (French soldiers and some of the Foreign Legion). I did make a mistake of using "United Kingdom" when I should have used Australia. Sorry about this. I must say the mistake of using "France" instead of country served is very frequent. We were fixing about 30 profiles with this problem and I must have been too quick. Thanks for understanding, Isabelle

Thanks Isabelle. That makes sense. My mistake was in choosing it from the drop down category choices without checking information about its use, and reading it as 'killed in action IN France'. I may have a few others labelled, but not many, for I hadn't been in the habit of adding categories until recently. Thanks for fixing. All the best for 2021, Christine

Isabelle, please don’t add “tribe” to the Native American sticker. It’s included already in the template, so it ends up saying “was a member of xxx tribe tribe.” Thx, Kathie
posted by Kathie (Parks) Forbes
Hi Kathie,

Unfortunately, if we do not add "Tribe" then the profiles are automatically assigned to a category that doesn't exist. There is only a category "Coeur d'Alene Tribe" but no category "Coeur d'Alene". Would you please consider discussing this with the Native Americans project? Renaming the category "Coeur d'Alene Tribe" to just "Coeur d'Alene" should eliminate the problem. Thanks, Isabelle (Categorization Project)

Hi Isabelle :)

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around.

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Hi. I’m a little confused by the change you made to the One Study sticker on James Greenlees. Are those templates changing? There’s nothing on the One Study page about it. If it is changing will editbot change the rest?

The word "Study" was missing and that triggered a red category. It took me a few moments to figure it out so I'm afraid the change history looks a bit confusing. Sorry about that. There are no planned changes that I'm aware of.

Hi Karen,

Thank you. I think Jean Richard is probably the easiest to connect. I'm looking into that. Jean Gabin is another possibility (3 films, no TV series) but he's really hard to connect.

Hi Isabelle, just posted the same question to Natalie. I see you have been changing Category:Source to state specific categories. Is there a place (g2g perhaps) where I can see the structure explained? Whats a directory, etc. I have a few hundred source pages so want to be aware of new standards. Thank you!
posted by H Husted
Hi Heather, thanks for asking!

Here is the page: We are doing this following a request (to Categorization) that the sources be better organized. But there are so many of them, we are sometimes creating new categories on the fly. We posted the question in the Categorization project group, but opted not to go to G2G. Perhaps we should have; we were quite hesitant. Anyway the basics are - all pages in "Sources by Name"; then they should be categorized in either a Topic under "Sources by Topic" (list of topics currently incomplete" or a location under "Sources by Location". Of course each source can go in several categories (some have both topics and locations). "Source Directories" is the place where we put pages that contain lists of sources. Please feel free to ask! I'll update the space page with more information.

Hi Isabelle. I hope you’re having a good summer. Remember Brian Epstein? I just accidentally found a connection between one of the profiles in my one-name study (and a distant relative of mine) who married Ada Attersall:

Nice work, Katie! Of course I haven't forgotten Brian Epstein - that was quite the project. And you've found a shorter connection path for Brian, because now the connection goes through the Coggraves. Woohoo! I bet it's not the last.

I found a Quaker wife in family tree. They have her name as Elizabeth unknown I did find books where she listed as Elizabeth Wingfield there mentioned in profile to Quaker records. Is there anyway to see if the Quakers can verify her Birth names. I sure this good reference or source for her. But thought let the Quaker project know what I found see if they can find anything. I am currently trying to contact the Wingfield family society to see if they have anything on her as well. I hope this helps with this profile.

Hi Isabelle,

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for all your work on English Profiles and in particular your work in Arborists, Categories and Middlesex Teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.


Hi Lizzie,

I'm happy remaining in the England project. Middlesex is a challenge, but I'm not a "regional" person, so I might as well stay there. I foresee a massive challenge in the cleaning up of London categories, so I might as well stay there too :-) I'm afraid I haven't been much use to England Arborists though, so please remove me from that team (my arborist "talents" are currently focussed on French Canada). One day, perhaps... Thanks for all the good work!


Hi there, Isabelle!

Thanks so very much for your participation in the spring Clean-a-thon! Every suggestion you cleared (over 3000!) made our Tree that much better. The WikiTree community appreciates YOU!
