About DAN DEBENHAM:
Dan's innate ability to work with clients to achieve their visual ideas is at the root of the Lenzworks creative process. Dan possesses a unique ability to take an existing idea to a new level, and help clients develop original concepts that take them far beyond what they thought was possible. Prior to joining Lenzworks, Dan spent 7 years at ESPN hosting Scholastic Sports America and SportsCenter. He continues to work as a national on-air talent for NBC and hosts several of Lenzworks' projects.

After years on the sidelines, she began doing family history and discovered that she loved it. Her specialty is helping new family historians find success-and maybe even avoid some of the mistakes she made. Kathryn teaches Sunday classes and webinars for the BYU Family History Library. She also presents at Riverton Saturday Seminars and other family history events. Her column on family history ran in the Nauvoo Times for about a year and is still available online. In addition, she is a regular contributor to the FamilySearch blog.  She works as a technical writer and instructional designer with a focus on usability and process improvement. Besides family history, she loves uplifting music, thought-provoking books, and fresh raspberries.

GOLDIE MAY, YOUR GENEALOGY RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Goldie May is an app that provides an automatic research log and other tools for genealogy research. You can save links and screenshots, add citations and comments., keep a task list, store tabs and windows, and collaborate with family and friends. Goldie May isn't another place for storing your conclusions; it's a place for your work in progress. Richard K. Miller is the creator of this new genealogy app and he previously held technology roles at three genealogy companies -- FamilyLink, Mocavo, and Findmypast. He only recently started doing family history research in earnest and that opened his eyes. He is building Goldie May to be the app he wants for his own research and hopes others will find it useful, as well. More information is at https://richardkmiller.com/ and https://www.goldiemay.com/ .
