Library receives Lewes-Lewis genealogy

Librarian Betsy Ferris has announced that the CCGS Library has received a copy of 400 Years with a New England Lewes-Lewis Family, by Barbara Lewis Williams.

The book was donated to the Cape Cod Genealogical Society in honor of the Cape Cod Lewis Clan by CCGS member Frank Harrison, with permission of the author.

The Lewes story begins in England in the 16th century and follows some of the family to Barnstable, MA and beyond through 15 generations. You can find the book listed in the biography section under 92 LEWES.

Betsy would like to remind members and researchers that they can access and search the CCGS Library Catalog online. Under the heading of Biography, for instance, you can see the current listing of all 97 volumes in that category. You can sort each listing by call number, title, or author.

A Library Volunteer will be happy to assist you in locating a particular volume in the collection.
