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. is also 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:

I think we need to progress on John Samways and Matilda Grant's death dates, plus (on my Grandma's side) Samuel Rainey and James Lyman and whoever on earth those other great-great-grandparents were. What's a family tree without a complete set of great-great-grandparents..?

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 - ...

I used Paul Johnson's to process the output of Sierra On-Line's genealogy software (which they don't make any more) in PERL... not sure I'm using it in the best possible way, but hey.

Plenty of genealogy software here, go for it.
