A Witch in Your Family Tree?

Could there be a witch in your family tree? Perhaps one of your ancestors lived during a time and location where ‘witch trials’ took place. The Oct. 16th  SGS meeting will feature presentations by Mary Gill, Sally Daugherty and Karen Childs who will share the history of witchcraft and their family connections to it. ‘If you have ancestry from early Essex County, MA, you have an excellent chance of finding a connection to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692”. Join us for what promises to be an interesting, if not bewitching evening!
