Jack Butler is an experienced professional genealogist, lecturer and author who has been helping folks track their ancestors for more than ten years. As a 6th generation Floridian, with strong ties to neighboring states, he has researched extensively throughout the South. But as his client's ancestors frequently came south from points north, Jack has also conducted significant work in New England, Canada and the United Kingdom.
He currently serves as Past President of the Florida State Genealogical Society and President of the Florida Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
