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.
