Monday Programming Update…….

Some of you may (or may not) have noticed that there were no postings since last Tuesday’s Russian update.

Unless someone links to my blog, I get about 200 hits a day and for better or worse, they are about 90% for the “Rule Five” posts. Heh !


I have been off since last Wednesday until tomorrow, (Tuesday !!) WEEEEE !!! Mini vacation.

Now, we were supposed to go to the in-laws home for Thanksgiving, BUT !!!!!!!!  Someone my wife works with, had a family member test positive for the China Wuhan Virus !!  Now my wife does not work the same shifts as the potentially infected person so the chance my wife being infected (from that person) is as close to zero as you could get.  But, rather than chance infecting her parents, we did not go to the in-laws.

So no 4-5 days of leftovers for me.

I have gotten a few little projects done around the house, but the vast majority of my time has been sitting on the computer doing my genealogy.  The site I use most is .  It’s a free site and new data comes online periodically and this week I hit a jackpot. It looks like a large amount of English census records came online and I was actually able to find (possibly) a completely missing/unknown family member.

I’m actually amazed at how much time I can spend doing the research.  I have DNA tests with Ancestry and 23andme and that has opened up a lot of avenues to research.

That’s been my week !

Back to regular programming soon.
