Abstract: Let $\hbox{Perf}(X)$ denote the family of all perfect subsets of a perfect Polish space $X$. We show several properties and characterizations of coinitial subfamilies of $\hbox{Perf}(X)$. Connections with the Vietoris topology and Morgan's category bases are observed. We characterize the least cardinality of a family of coinitial ideals with noncoinitial intersection. Some examples of special noncoinitial families in $\hbox{Perf}(X)$ are presented. Much place is devoted to perfect isomorphisms between ideals of subsets of $X$.
