Goldie May keeps a list of all the sites you visit, rabbit holes and all. ✅ Screenshots Take screenshots and save them directly to your research log. ✅ Citations On known websites, citations are created for you. ✅ Snapshots of your windows & tabs Too many browser tabs open? Take a snapshot and save them for later. Let's call it rabbit-hole insurance. ✅ Accessible from anywhere Your data is stored in the cloud. Access your projects from the library, an archive, or your nearest FamilySearch center. ✅ Subway Map See where your ancestor lived over time with this unique timeline tool. See census and newspaper hints in context.

Now I'm building Goldie May for my research and yours! Goldie is my great-grandmother's name and May comes from a beloved ancestor on my wife's side of the family. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you! — Richard K. Miller

Really great extension that simplifies so many of the steps for keeping track of research. Particularly for me, as someone who is not only disorganized but also distracted by every rabbit hole I find, this helps to keep me on task and most especially know where to start each time I begin researching. A huge game-changer in the family history tech space.
