Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about Richard Miller’s new chrome extension, Goldie May. The extension logs each website you visit and offers helpful research guidance for research in the United States. Start with a person in your FamilySearch Family Tree, then set an objective. Goldie May advises you where to look for locality information, suggests reviewing the ancestor’s timeline, and reviewing the sources already attached. From there you can set additional tasks to do and continue to research. Richard hopes to add more locations outside U.S. research soon. Join us as we talk with Richard about this helpful tool!

We personally use Airtable for research logs and Word for our reports. Goldie May is awesome too and we know several people in our online courses also use Goldie May!
