Although a heavy workload at my day job these past couple months have once again precluded extensive Find-A-Grave activity, I managed again to take several photographs at Abington Friends Cemetery in Jenkintown while out on my usual errands. Most noteworthy among the graves photographed over the past month is that of Henry Faulkner, III, who owned and operated a number of auto dealerships in the Philadelphia metropolitan area as head of the Faulkner Automotive Group.

English Anflick gravestone photos have been posted to Find-A-Grave. In preparing my application for the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania's First Families lineage society, I've ordered birth and marriage records for my paternal grandparents. Lastly, I announce my plans to perform research on the Mumma branch of my Lancaster ancestors this summer. Links are in the show notes.

This month on the podcast, Jenkintown Library ditches! I'll let you know where I'm getting my Ancestry fix now. It turned up some 18th century baptism records from Switzerland. Also, the second "Special Interest Group" at the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania was a success! I networked with a pair of interesting people there this month, and shared my own family history "brick wall" involving some 19th century Pickersgills. Links are in the show notes.

Drupal 9 had been powering Genealogy By Tim G.'s landing page since shortly after the site's launch in 2020. After about a week of troubleshooting, Tim was able to update the site's Drupal installation to it's latest version, 10.0.1.

I'd like to note here the passing of Frederick W. Maurer, which occurred on the 12th of last July, 2022. Fred was an occasional contributor to the First Friday Genealogy Group which I've been attending to the best of my ability since about 2008, and he was a regular contributor to the Northeast Philadelphia History Network (NEPHN), which meets on the first Wednesday evening of most months at the Pennepack Baptist Church on Krewstown Road.
