New Cape Genealogical Resources Book to Appear

The Publications Committee of the Society is preparing a new book, entitled Cape Cod and Islands Genealogical Resources, which contains information on Cape and Islands historical societies, histories of all Cape towns, addresses of surname societies, library resources, websites related to Barnstable County informational sources, and considerably more.

The book is designed to be used by all genealogical researchers who are investigating Cape and Islands ancestry, and will be available for sale in March at Society meetings; it will also be sold at the New England Regional Genealogical Consortium's bi-ennial conference in Springfield in early April. At that time, Past-President Robert Ward will be making a session presentation on Cape genealogical resources, and the book will be available in conjunction with that presentation.

The book can also be used together with Historical and Genealogical Atlas and Guide to Barnstable County, Massachusetts, an earlier publication by the Falmouth Genealogical Society, authored by the late Marge Gibson, which contains much valuable information including Cape maps and cemeteries.

Questions may be directed to Dave Martin, Publications Committee, at
