We’re Celebrating 50 Years! 

The countdown has begun!

August 25, 1971, Cape Cod Genealogical Society was founded by a small, but dedicated group of genealogists in Harwich, MA. The Society grew steadily, attracting members from all corners of the United States, and in recent years, from Canada. On August 25, 2021, we will begin a year long celebration of the history of our Society, and we are inviting everyone to participate with us. 

Keep an eye on this page to learn what we have planned.
