Clarkeology.com is mainly our Clarke genealogy site, set up to host the family tree info dug up by my Dad Barry Leslie Clarke, and turned into web pages by Paul Clarke. Click on either of those names to get climbing the family tree from that point, or see the surnames, or the family tree forum (that is not really a forum any more, sorry).
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.
Maybe start with Dad below 👇
Made some progress now on John Samways, Matilda Grant, Samuel Rainey, 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 if we find any.
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.
Looking for Stoke Newington or Folkestone info here? Man alive you've been coming here a long time! Best off heading to the blog...
