CLASS by RICHARD K. MILLER:
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/ .
