Goldie May is Launching five Exciting New Features for RootsTech 2023

 I received this information from Richard K. Miller, the developer of Goldie May software:


Goldie May is launching five exciting new features 

for RootsTech 2023

1. Firefox support! Goldie May now works with Firefox, in addition to Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and any Chrome-based browser.

2. Boundary Changes: The Goldie May timeline tool (the Subway Map) now has the option to display data from the Newberry Atlas of Historical County Boundaries so you can see boundary changes in context.

3. Newspaper Hints: Subway Map hints now include links to newspapers from Chronicling America, Utah Digital Newspapers, and later this week, Storied (NewspaperArchive).

4. A major update to the Canvas: On the Canvas you can compare and analyze documents. Now you can draw lines, shapes, sticky notes, and arrows as well. You can also upload images from your computer, not just from the Goldie May screenshot tool.

5. The Command Palette: This power-user tool allows you to type what you want instead of using your mouse, easily navigating to any element of Goldie May, plus many resources outside of Goldie May, including all 3200+ FamilySearch indexed collections, any ancestor in 8 generations of your FamilySearch tree, or any of the newspaper hints now available in Goldie May. You can also launch searches into the catalogs of the major family history companies and other resources.

Firefox support is available to all users. The other four features are available in the Goldie May Plus plan (the lower of the paid plans), which will be on sale during RootsTech for $95/year. See a demo of the new features at the following link:


Disclosure:  After registering for the Goldie May website, I was offered a complimentary Pro subscription to the site, which I greatly appreciate.  However, my objective reporting will not be affected by that.

Nice to see the FF support! Will be installing it as FF is my main browser.
