Cape Cod Genealogical Society Bulletin

CCGS BulletinThe Bulletin was the official publication of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society from its first issue in 1975, when it was called the Quarterly, until the Fall 2010 issue, when it ceased publication to make way for The Journal of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society, scheduled to begin in the late spring of 2011. The Bulletin had been in print continuously throughout its history, and for most years three issues were published: Spring, Summer and Fall.

The Bulletin focused on the genealogy of Cape Cod and related research. Many of the articles contained records and sources that are not available in any other publications.  Articles included short genealogies; census, land and probate records; birth, death and marriage records; member success stories; articles on the many aspects of genealogical research; book reviews; summaries of holdings of Cape Cod genealogical libraries and historical societies; and articles of humor and general interest to the Cape Cod researcher.

Printed copies of the Bulletin are available for research or purchase in the CCGS Genealogy Room.

Bulletin CD

The Bulletin CD contains every word, picture, map and diagram from each issue of the Bulletin, starting with its very first issue as the Quarterly in October 1975, and extending through the December 2010 Issue.

Each issue has been scanned into a searchable PDF file and is thus "every-word searchable." The CD is available for use or purchase in the CCGS Genealogy Room. It can also be purchased through the CCGS Shop.
