In this month's episode I detail my revised genealogy tour plan. After that I have a tale of tragedy and heartbreak involving some descendants of the Sunbury Hogendoblers, as well as a tale of triumph and serendipity involving descendants of the Mt. Joy Hougendoblers. Other items of interest include the Vlogit app for portable video blogging, the digitization efforts of Sunbury's City Cemetery records, and Habitat for Humanity's Move for Homes, which continues this month despite cycling being dropped from its list of approved activities.

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.

JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (GBT) — GenealogyByTim.com 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. ⬮
