#Genealogy – Without the Sermon: Introducing “The Catholic Gene”

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

A new take on Genealogy and a very polished blog to boot.  Welcome to “The Catholic Gene“. Just look at these bloggers …

Jasia (Creative Gene), Donna Pointkouski who also writes What’s Past is Prologue, Stephen Danko, Sheri Fenley, Lisa (Smallest Leaf), Lisa A. Alzo, Denise Levenick, Craig Manson, and Ceil Jensen.  That’s not a blog, that’s a full blown Polish Genealogy Conference!

I had seen mention of it via my rootsweb genealogy mailing lists, then I saw it pop up on my iGoogle Genealogy Page.  I had to check it out after reading Creative Gene (see my blog roll — in fact most of these people are on it). Naturally, Stanczyk‘s curiosity  was piqued by the blog roll entry, “The Curt Jester”  — clever.

Make this a part of your Sunday ritual, its good for the soul and should be good for your genealogy too.

College Football Is Back !!!

Well a little diversion from my more erudite pursuits…

Somehow Stanczyk feels a case of Football Interruptus. What a crazy week!  Baylor knocks off TCU — good for the Bears. Utah St vs Auburn provided late hysterics to make for an interesting game. UM and ND interrupted by Climate Change. A Win for Big Blue and the Blues for the Irish. But next week the College World arrives in Ann Arbor. What ? “College Game Day” comes to Ann Arbor for the Throwback Jersey Game – “UNDER THE LIGHTS” of:   MICHIGAN vs NOTRE DAME .

LSU is able to set aside the distractions and in the biggest game of the week, stuffs Oregon in Arlington, TX in a first week Top-5 match-up where the lower rated team wins! Gotta love that Les Miles (LSU Coach).  Georgia and UCLA fizzle — pity Stanczyk likes Richt & Neuheisel . Minnesota played well against USC. All-in-all, I think the Pac-12 looked bad. The Big10 (uh 12) looked pretty good (IND excepted) — Welcome Big RED (Nebraska in the BIG10 AWESOME).
