About

13 July 2014
Two weeks

One more week teaching, another week of work, and then I'm on vacation.
Sitting on a trove of old pictures, and I need to figure out a way to better categorize and display on this website.

Home for the weekend

Have a weekend off from teaching. The grass is tall, housework to be done, and the kids are sick.
Good news is that after hours can have a look at the new civil index for Ireland on irishgenealogy.ie, as it's much expanded from what was previously available on microfilm. Should be able to fill in a few more holes, time permitting.

Set up, back up and teaching.

Moving went without too much of a hitch, and had a week and a bit of vacation time used to finish moving in. Went into a shortened work week last week, and as of this weekend we've now hit the 95% of everything being unpacked and of having found a home in our house.
Unfortunately with having moved in, I'll now be teaching full time for the next few weeks, so will not have spare time to do anything other than, perhaps, some yard work on the weekends.

All the boxes of genealogy paperwork and old photos have now moved into my new office/workspace, and the scanner is now permanently setup. Next time off that I get, which will be post course, I'll be able to start scanning/processing/posting what I have.

Moving Day

I'll be offline for the next few days until the new house is sorted out and the internet is connected.
Reminder that my email address has changed, and the old one will not longer work. New email listed on the about page.

Moving

As can be seen, the main page hasn't been updated recently. Back in January we listed our Condo for sale, packed quite a number of our possessions into boxes and put them into our already loaded storage (from the last time we tried to sell). Finally in April we sold, and the same month put an offer on a house. We're now moving at the end of this week from Burnaby to Mission.
Along with moving, we've sat down gone through our bills and decided that it would be best to cut the line and just use our cell phones, moreover, move to an independent ISP to further save money. Because we're going to a new ISP, my old e-mail will no longer be available, and it's been changed to gmail, and is listed under the about page.

Hopefully I'll be able to do more frequent updates when everything is unpacked in the new house. My computing/work area will now expand from a small nook in the laundry room to a full fleged room with places to put and easily review paperwork and stuff.

Old Year's Sickness

Nothing like bringing in the New Year being sick (Might've been flu, whatever it was, it was nasty). Spent the last few days in bed, today I'm feeling better and went into work for the New Year's Levee.

Happy New Year.
