Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI) began in 1975 by a dedicated few who envisioned a non-profit genealogical society aimed at the advancement of genealogy as a hobby and a profession, the encouragement of sharing accurate documentation, and the exploration of new avenues of research. After a restart, the society was incorporated in 1978 and today boasts membership from both within Plymouth County, its towns in Massachusetts and all across the United States.
We are a society of genealogists at all levels of proficiency, from beginners to professionals. Our primary purpose is to promote interest in genealogy, family histories and historical subjects affecting those in Plymouth Co., its towns in Massachusetts and elsewhere. Guests are welcome to participate in our gathering.
Our newsletter, The Genealogical Inquirer, is currently distributed to members each year (preferably by email in a PDF format) with each issue sharing genealogical news, resources, hints, queries and a calendar of genealogical activities. We exchange newsletters with many genealogical societies in the United States and Canada.
PCGI maintains several bookcases in the upper level reference room of the East Bridgewater Public Library, when open, which are devoted to genealogy and the society. There is a members' card index and a group of pedigree chart binders. We encourage sharing information among members who are researching similar lines or family branches. Also in our cabinets are genealogical reference books, newsletters and other resource materials.
Plymouth County, Massachusetts communities include: Abington, Bridgewater, Brockton, Carver, Cohasset, Duxbury, East Bridgewater, Halifax, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Hull, Kingston, Lakeville, Marion, Marshfield, Mattapoiset, Middleborough, Norwell, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, Rochester, Rockland, Scituate, Wareham, West Bridgewater and Whitman.
