Complete Bulletin (1975-2010) Available on CD

From it first issue in 1975, when it was called the Quarterly, the Bulletin was the official publication of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society until the the Fall of 2010, 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.

To preserve the rich treasures of the Bulletin and to make them accessible to researchers, the Cape Cod Genealogical Society has issued a new CD containing all 119 issues of the Bulletin, from 1975-2010.

During its 36 year run, the Bulletin focused on the genealogy of Cape Cod and related research. Articles included short genealogies; transcriptions of census, land, probate, birth, death and marriage records; family name indices; histories of Cape Cod towns; 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.

Each issue has been scanned into a searchable PDF file, enabling a researcher to find every instance of a family name, place, building, picture, map, diagram, etc., that has ever been mentioned in the Bulletin.

Priced at $15.00, which includes tax, shipping and handling, the new complete CD is available through the CCGS Shop or at the CCGS Library in Dennis Port, MA.

This CD replaces an earlier release that contained articles only through 2008.

Those who purchased the earlier CD can upgrade to the complete edition by paying $5.00 at a CCGS monthly program meeting, or at the CCGS Library in Dennis Port; or by mailing a check for $5.00 and shipping information to:
