Jack Butler will present “The Tombstone Just Said Wife of…or Finding the Women in Your Family History.” The title derives from women's grave markers that often do not include their names, but only a reference to their status as “wife of….”  Women make up half of our genealogy, but because of situations like inadequate information on headstones, it is often a hidden half. This lecture addresses a wide variety of records that contain information about our female ancestors.  

Butler is the primary research for Southern Heir Ways Genealogy. He is an experienced 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. He has also conducted significant work in New England, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Butler is a past President of both the Florida Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists and the Florida State Genealogical Society.
