    the Salem of the witch trials was Salem Village, not Salem Town.... and Salem Village is now Danvers, so all those tourists who head to the current city of Salem for October fun have it wrong  ;-)

    Much of the Danvers Archival Center's collection is the original witch trials documentation.

    PS: I'm descended for all of them (accusers, accused, judges, witnesses, and so on.....) to the point that I joke that I need to insert a history book of the trials into my genealogy program ;-)
