Based upon the recent Member Survey, the Cape Cod Genealogical Society has begun a Genealogy Mentoring Program for the month of April, 2010.  Different members of our Society have graciously offered their expertise in various topics that may be of interest to you in your Research.

These members are planning at being at various sites in our area for specific topics and hours of time. Feel free to come to them to focus on a specific area of interest.

  1. I applaud all of you for being the first of our MENTORS! It takes courage to be available to try something new! I know each of you have a lot to offer and I am grateful you are willing to share. I hope many more of our members share their knowledge with our membership in coming months! Good for you!!!
