Welcome to the Cape Cod Genealogical Society

Annual “Our Members Share” Meeting

            It’s time to plan our Holiday meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, December 17, 2019.

In order to celebrate the December holidays each year, we take time to focus on our members. This is your opportunity to share with us all. 

Please consider sharing with your fellow members during our traditional holiday program…

        If you have: 

                                     — A story to tell

                                     — A artifact or photo(es) passed down from an ancestor

                                     — A recent DNA discovery

                                     — Or anything else related to your genealogical journey

Consider sharing with your fellow members during our traditional holiday program with a 5 -10 minute presentation.  In order to make sure everyone has time to share, please contact us at  info@capecodgenealogy.org   with your name and topic prior to December 10th. 


Another tradition at our December meeting is to eliminate the Dunkin’ Munchkins, in favor of more traditional holiday goodies donated by our members. Please consider baking/providing holiday treats we can all share during our social time prior to our meeting.  If you are sharing a family traditional item, perhaps add a small sign telling us what it is and why it is significant to you.  

  • In order to ensure we will have enough to share with all who attend, and that there is a variety of items, please consider letting us know in advance that you intend to bring food. 

Our meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 17, 2019, at the Brewster Ladies Library Rte 6A,  in the auditorium, which can be accessed from the side entrance.  The meeting is scheduled to begin at 10 AM, with coffee and refreshments available from 9:30 AM.  

In consideration of the library’s regular patrons, we ask that you park in the adjoining parking lot, behind the Baptist Church, next door to the library, unless you are disabled and need to park close to the building.
