In this month's episode, recorded on May 7th, I make some early discoveries in the 1950 Census, including my Grandaunt Sheila's occupation as census taker and my Granduncle Albert's residency Philadelphia State Hospital at Byberry. I make contact through FamilySearch with some potential distant cousins along the Smith and Foley lines, including an e-mail contact with a descendant of Bernard Smith of Boston. Lastly, a recent update to the Webtrees software will enable me to whitelist photographs and documents as I clear them for publication.

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.
