Thanks for helping out Bob,
sometimes I get ahead of myself.
Dave, you can also trace the wiring on the photo I had sent of the actual
module, its more or less clearly visible under the lupe. Please note that
on that module I mounted the IC upside down, with the pins sticking up, and
bending the grounded pins down toward the PCB.

The 20 MHz connects only to pin 3.
+3V connects to pin 4 , but not pins 2 or 3.
Pin 6 hooks only to pin 2 and nothing else.
