MGC stands in a nationwide community of genealogists and historians asking for access to public records and supporting the preservation of history.

We make our efforts and concerns known to others through our website, its blog, our newsletter, and our speaking engagements. We provide an educational seminar in even years (our next is in 2018) in Massachusetts. In odd years, we actively participate in the New England Regional Genealogical Consortium’s conference (NERGC). We are already gearing up for NERGC 2019 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Our individual members provide direct support for our efforts, funding our website and other operations. Membership is $20 per year.

Our organizational members provide communication and support from Massachusetts genealogy and historical societies and libraries. We ask each society to provide a delegate to participate in our board meetings. This communication and the new and fresh points of view is important. It enables us to fulfill our mission.
