In this episode I briefly introduce myself, and then outline a tentative itinerary for this year's Genealogy Cycling Tour of Lancaster. This year's tour will take me to Sunbury, Northumberland County, in search of John Hogendobler, brother of Catherine Hogentogler Kline, who left Lancaster County back in the late 1860s. From Sunbury I will cycle down to Lancaster County in search of descendants of Joseph Hougendobler, Jr., another brother of Catherine. Some of Joseph's descendants eventually moved to Philadelphia, not far from my current home in Jenkintown. 

The trip will take place during the Habitat for Humanity's Move for Homes charity ride exercise event. Donations to Habitat are most welcome at the link in the show notes.

[UPDATE: Due to insurance concerns, cycling is no longer approved as an activity for 2021's Move for Homes, but I still welcome and encourage you to donate using the link provided between now and the 11th of July.]

JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (GBT) — is back online after a week-long outage. The interruption was caused by a buggy upgrade on March 21st. GCC-10.3.0 apparently generates an illegal instruction when it builds MariaDB-10.5.9 on a Pentium-M processor. Downgrading to GCC-9.3.0 and rebuilding MariaDB resolved the issue. Gentoo Forum members were helpful in diagnosing the problem. A bug report might be filed in the near future. ⬮
