Free Webinar – Available on Demand

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of court cases and accusations of witchcraft across colonial America, yet the most famous series of prosecutions from this period are the Salem witch trials between 1692 and 1693. In that short period, more than two hundred were accused, thirty found guilty, and 20 executed.

In this online lecture, Chief Genealogist David Allen Lambert will discuss how to verify your lineage from someone accused of witchcraft in Salem during the Hysteria. He will point you to key records, resources, and references for proving your line of descent.
