About & Contact

On a personal note, I'm a software developer who worked in tech roles at three genealogy companies. Now I'm building Goldie May to be the tool I want for my own genealogy research. I hope it's also useful to you!

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!
