Clarke Family Tree
This site is home to my blog, with links to all the stuff I like. It's all about me, my lovely wife Clare and our beautiful boys Harry and Tommy... Also the usual stuff, work, TV, home brew, home automation, diy electronics etc. Hmm is some of that not usual? Well I'm really into it right now.
Clarkeology.com/ is mainly our Clarke genealogy site, set up to host the family tree info dug up by my Dad Barry Clarke, and turned into web pages by me, My page with my family links. Click on either of those names to get climbing the tree from that point, or see the surnames, or the family tree forum... Well it took me a while but I now have our family tree data organised again, there is a page for each person in our family tree with links to their parents, children, and siblings. I wrote it in php in the end rather than ruby as it was easier to tie it into the rest of the site then. So now to get on adding more branches to our family tree! If you'd like to traverse our family tree you can pick a person (say me or Charles Valentine Clarke or The Famous Harry Clarke) and then follow the links up and down the tree. Ooh new, start with Dad below:
Occupation Civil Servant, Driver/ labourer, Retired, Trainee Electro Plater
Born 1 JUN 1947 3 Nettlecombe Ave, Southsea, Portsmouth, Hants (51 Drayton Rd North End, Portsmouth, Hants)
Father Ronald Leslie CLARKE 1911 - 1982
Mother Gertrude RAINEY 1921 - 1997
Siblings: [PRIVATE], [PRIVATE], [PRIVATE], [PRIVATE]
Barry Leslie CLARKE is father to Paul Leslie CLARKE
Made some progress now John Samways,Matilda Grant, Samuel Rainey and James Lyman so we now have a complete set of great-great-grandparents for Dad! Still more info to be had from the census and BMD records, we're adding new family occasionally. It's really exciting when you find new family, but then it's a struggle again when you feel you have exhausted all the family tree info you can find. Find us also on myheritage.com, though I think we've used up our free allowance there and have decided it's not worth paying them any more. New family will definitely appear on this site.
No links to royalty or unclaimed family fortunes yet, but we have tracked down some surviving branches of our family tree that we knew nothing about, and found we had relatives on the Titanic.
If you think you might have a link into our family tree, or would like to put out a request for assistance, please leave a message or drop me an email - email@example.com ...
Looking for Stoke Newington or Folkestone info here? Man alive you've been coming here a long time! Best off heading to the blog or following one of the "latest posts" links below for non genealogy related content.
Clarke tree info maintained by Bazzer, Mahon family tree info maintained by The wife. If you can provide help with our family tree, or would like any more info, leave a message, or e-mail me (Pauly) and I'll pass it on.
Don't forget we have the surname Clarke (and Clarks) in Paul's tree and Clarkes (and Clarks) in Clare's tree too. The wife's great-grandmothers original name was Clarke. There is no link that we have found thus far, no we were not connected before we were married... It is a very common name so good luck if you are also tracing your Clarke tree...
