Bloodlines of Salem
Bloodlines of Salem is the place where visitors share ideas and information
about the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, its participants and their families.
Many of us have researched and proved our descents from one or more of
the participants. The trials unfolded more than three centuries ago and
continue to figure prominently in the studies of history, law and religion.
As amateur and professional Salemologists, however, our study of the
trials isn't limited to our lineages. While the facts about our infamous
ancestors might be the focus of our work, it's the celebration of their
memories and mysteries that continue to fascinate new generations of
their families and the public. We welcome you to explore with us.
