In 1692, 24 people died in the hysteria of the Salem Witch Trials. On September 22, Margaret Scott and Samuel Wardell were among eight people hanged after being found guilty of witchcraft. Ann Putnam and her family played a leading role as accusers in these tragic events. Three of their descendants — BIFHSGO members Susan Davis, Darrel Kennedy, and Marianne Rasmus — will share their stories, and examine the life and times of their Puritan ancestors in the 17th-century Massachusetts Bay Colony. Free parking and free admission. BIFHSGO memberships are available, and give you access to more online resources. Further information: https://bifhsgo.ca/eventListings.php?nm=127 or Tel. 613-234-2520.
