Discover our story
“Genealogy Jack” started 13 years ago when I was 10 years old. My favorite place to research was the New England Historic Genealogy Society in Boston. It was where I learned lots of the skills I use daily: how to use microfilm machines, navigate online databases (like Ancestry, FamilySearch, FindMyPast), and invaluable tips and tricks for combing records.
“I was always curious about my genealogy, but unsure of where to start. Professional companies offer such high prices for research and I was weary of jumping into an impersonal, high-cost experience. I stumbled on Jack’s weekly blog, and reached out to him about research. From the first response, I felt comfort and trust. Working through my ancestry with Jack has been an experience I am grateful for and would recommend to anybody.”
“Working with Jack on my family history has been the best experience I could ask for. First, I can rely on instant communication and full transparency. It feels like we’re a team rather than a customer and a client. All this goes with a fantastic, high quality research product. Jack is so thorough with his research and creative with his writing. It feels like I’ve met ancestors I never knew! “
PRIDE IN THE BEST ATTITUDE AND SERVICE
Genealogy is personal and an exciting journey. I have always been struck by how kind people are in the genealogy world, and how much of a difference it makes when you are working with somebody who cares. My top priority is making you feel welcome, supported, and respected every step of the way.

THE GENEALOGY JACK BLOG
The idea behind “Genealogy Jack” began with a weekly blog I started during my senior year at college. It features short articles designed to share tips, tricks, stories, and surprises in genealogy for free.
My blog posts have been featured in the Duke Daily and Vita Brevis, the New England Historic Genealogical Society’s blog. Check it out!
