January GEDCOM Update
Tuesday, January 4, 2022 9:41 AM

JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (GBT) — The online Graham Family Tree was updated yesterday, January 3, 2022. Updated lines include the Smith and the Snyder/Beechman lines.

Of particular interest over the past month has been the identification of several siblings to Minnie Snyder Anflick, including the elusive Mrs. I. Beechman, who was identified as a sister of Pauline Snyder Miller, while the latter was recovering from consumption at the Jewish Consumptive Relief Society in Denver.

In the Smith line, more vital details of Johanna Smith Harrison's siblings, William Smith, Mary Smith King, and Elizabeth Smith Quinlan were uncovered. Details about potential Smith relatives in Boston were not included in this update, but may be included in the next one.

Photographs of the Smith gravestones, as well as Lillian Snyder Beechman's immigration photo, are visible to approved members. ⬮

June GEDCOM update

JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (GBT) — The online Graham Family Tree was updated yesterday, ahead of my upcoming summer cycling tour of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This update features the baptism records of the children of John Hougendobler, who is my qualifying ancestor for my admission to the Sons of the American Revolution.

Improvements made to Webtrees family tree
Wednesday, March 31, 2021 8:43 PM

JENKINTOWN, Pennsylvania (GBT) — Some improvements were made this week to the Webtrees family tree at GenealogyByTim.com/grahamtree. Page loading has substantially improved after circular references were removed. The individual pages of some of our most popular ancestors should no longer time out. Media presentation has also improved. Unsightly "404" error cards have been replaced by attractive silhouette profiles where media files have not yet been approved for publication. Media files will become available to viewers and members as they are gradually approved. If you haven't visited the family tree in a while, stop by and check out the changes! ⬮

GenealogyByTim.com Back Online After Week-Long Outage
Monday, March 29, 2021 12:05 PM

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. ⬮
