REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!! ~ ETHNICITY AND GENEALOGY ~ Massachusetts has been a landing point for immigrants since 1620, and though the predominant nationalities of immigrants have varied in different eras, the challenge of locating those newly arrived, impoverished and disenfranchised ancestors has remained equally challenging through the centuries. See the blue menu on the top right of the MGC homepage at for more details on how to register. Save money by becoming a member of MGC first! Members pay $60 before July 1st, non-members pay $75. Everyone, regardless of membership status, pays $85 after midnight on July 1st.
