Founded in 1971, the Cape Cod Genealogical Society acquires, catalogs, and preserves genealogical and historical information, emphasizing but not limited to Cape Cod.

The Society gathers and disseminates genealogical and historical information through a collection of diverse activities. At our monthly meeting and workshops throughout the year, material is presented by a team of CCGS members or by invited nationally-known experts. Special Interest Groups (SIGS) provide members the opportunity to gather with others in the Society who share a similar research interest. In addition, research trips and other special events are offered throughout the year.
