The Journal of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society
Topics include Cape historical narratives, features on past national events which had an impact on the growing population of the Cape (e.g., epidemics), transcriptions of original documents, edited versions of diaries and journals kept by Cape Codders of the past, and narratives of challenging genealogical investigations which may illuminate for others how to conduct their own searches.
Initiated in June 2011, the Journal is available through a CCGS Membership.
Anyone interested in submitting a manuscript for the Journal is invited to send it in care of the Society's Post Office Box (see below), in care of Journal Editor, or through an email attachment to Carolyn Weiss (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David Martin (email@example.com).

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. Other articles included short genealogies; census, land and probate records; birth, death and marriage records; member success stories; 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 - Complete Series|
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.
