Welcome to the Cape Cod Genealogical Society

The Board of Directors of Cape Cod Genealogical Society, in consideration of the latest directive of Gov. Baker, has decided to cancel all in-person events currently scheduled. We realize that many will be disappointed, but feel that the health of  our members and of the general public, warrants this decision.

August virtual Presentation

Kathy Kaldis first became interested in family history at a young age, when she listened to stories about her great-great-grandfather, who was born in Cape Breton and later moved to Boston, where he helped to build Fenway Park. During her research in Canada, she also discovered many connections to Cape Cod. 
On Tuesday, August 18, 2020, Kathy will be sharing her research knowledge related to Cape Breton and Nova Scotia. Her enthusiasm for the topic, and the extensive list of resources she will provide us, should make this a very worthwhile presentation to attend. 
A member of CCGS, Kathy is a professional genealogist and lecturer. She has completed the Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University, as well as many advanced level genealogical institute courses. Kathy has worked as a genealogist for both Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants and The New England Historic and Genealogical Society and specializes in New England and the Atlantic Canadian Provinces, lineage and forensic research.
You are invited to join us on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, at 10 AM, for this free presentation on Zoom. Registration will be required for this event. Members will receive an email with instructions on how to register. Non-members are asked to email us at info@capecodgenealogy.org to receive a registration link.
