Welcome to BrokenClaw.net


Website Update 2012

As of 2012, I have decided to recombine several of my websites into this one  BrokenClaw.net blog.  I have tried to redirect web links to the appropriate page. Nevertheless, you should be able to find what you’re looking for by checking the Index pages at the top or the Topics list on the left or by using the Search box.

What is BrokenClaw.net

BrokenClaw.net is a personal website, created and maintained as a hobby. We have been online since 1998, when we started as a free ad-sponsored homepage with accounts of our outdoor adventures, primarily hiking and biking on park trails in the mid-Atlantic region. In 2000, I decided to create my own website, so I registered the domain, www.brokenclaw.com. Over time, the content of the website has grown to include my genealogy research, articles about my native American heritage, sports, and technology, with an occassional observation of the world around me thrown in. In 2005, I switched the domain to BrokenClaw.net.
