About Family Clark (DeClercq) and Jones
Please sign in to see more.
I have been researching our family history for over 30 years now. The first 10 years not a lot  happened but with the internet things really changed. I met a lady named Lenny  De Vos who has a web page about her home town of Meulebeke Belgium. This is the town where my  grandmother was born and raised until the age of 14 when she came to the USA. Lenny was able to  obtain access to the town and parish records of Meulebeke where I found tens of thousands of our  ancestors. I also learned to access the Belgian archives so I was able to find thousands of  relatives in other Belgian towns. I had several DNA test done and on the Clark side  they show we are descendants of  Maurice Prendergast born 1125 in Belgium. Maurice was a Flemish knight who with his sons helped  Strongbow invaded Ireland in 1169. For their help they were rewarded with land in Waterford and  Tipperary. Maurice would be around my 26th Grandfather. 
  Ancestry.com was a great tool to research my Mothers side of the family. Her family has been in  the USA for many years . Lots of our relatives served in the Civil War. According to my DNA test we  are related to Jesse James on this side. It also shows my eighth or ninth Grand Parent was a Native  American. I have come across all kinds of information on our family most of it is posted on this  sight.

The most exciting thing I have found in my search is meeting the Martin family. Al Martin is my  great uncle. He passed away in 1966. My DNA matched with a lady from San Antonio. The test showed  we were fourth cousins. She sent me a email asking me about a man named Al Martin and we figured  out Al was Alphonse Maenhout my great uncle who was supposed to have died in a auto accident at the  age of 16. Al did not died after all. He married and had 6 children and many grandchildren. His  Maenhout- Clark family always assumed he was deceased but turns out he had a wonderful life.
