The GoAncestry adventure continues

I thought to add a bit more detail to this long GoAncestry journey.  The webiste has some more features that were added this last year.  FLAG COUNTER I enjoy the flag counter as I get a glimpse into the location our visitors are coming from.  I am not sure it really tells me anything more than that, but that is enough for such an easy to use application. SECURE Spent some time getting the site into a more secure state.  It wasn't insecure to begin with, but the method used to



GoAncestry continues to evolve

Things have been progressing nicely for the site and for our personal efforts in Genealogy and History.  We believe we are on the right track and that over time we will have a wealth of information posted here that will help others.  While it will be time that is the judge of that opinion, I am comfortable in continuing our efforts on our current path.   We do have the basic constructs built for the US States and their respective counties.  Efforts to create this infrastructure has pro



Next steps in a long journey

Things have come along well in the past weeks.  Over the last days part of our team has been working to add more research related content to pages from Maryland, Delaware, Ohio, and even a few other entries here and there.   My dilemma is now trying to decide what gets worked on next. A part of me is considering that I keep working on with the foundation, those page constructs, databases, and the mechanics of the site presentation. Though it is a bit less rewarding than bringing a regi



A digital work space

I have been working on my family tree for a number of years now.  During that time I also worked on the trees of others, the brick walls of others, and those other aspects of life that are not genealogically related.  I still work outside the home.  I would find different clues while researching, and each of them would open a new door to possibilities.  Many times I would have to chose ONE of them and pursue that option for what seemed like weeks.  Then upon a successful or unsuccessful outcome

    • INGREDIENTS 2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, butterflied Salt and black pepper All-purpose flour 6 tablespoons butter 5 tablespoons olive oil 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup chicken stock 1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped   INSTRUCTIONS Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add 2 pieces of chicken and cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. Remove and transfer to plate. As above, add more butter and olive oil to frying pan and cook the remaining chicken. Into frying pan add the lemon juice, stock and capers. Bring to boil, scraping the pan for extra flavor. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley.   NOTE: I find that I like this with Fettuccini pasta.  With pasta I also desire more sauce, so I would normally add more of the stock, lemon juice and capers in similar proportions to make as much sauce as I desire for the meal.  If it becomes to thin, just add in some flour to thicken the sauce.    EAT  
    • Just trying this again today and thought to add a bit of parmesan cheese that was getting a bit older.
    • This tastes very good, but I think I am going to cut the recipe in half as it is just too much food unless you are serving for a family of 8 or so.
    • In a few short weeks I will be back in Germany and visiting Munich, Nurnberg, Dresden, Prague, and again in Munich.   I am so excited to be heading back, visiting Oktoberfest, and then traveling around a bit to some familiar and new places.
