Cryptic Masons are charged with preserving the heritage of our traditions. The General Grand Council makes available, therefore, the current and past records of activities, reference documents, and tools. We hope these help to both understand how we have operated and provide a solid basis for a path forward for Cryptic Masonry in particular, and Freemasonry in general.

Now the preamble to the Constitution and Bylaws, these are the basis for building solid Cryptic Masons and organizations.

Thanks to the efforts of Past Most Puissant General Grand Master, David A. Grindle, the entire set of Proceedings of the General Grand Council are available for you electronically.
