Olympia Genealogical Society October Meeting

October is the month of colder weather, hot cider and Halloween! In preparation for the holiday, we have asked OGS member Jerri McCoy to talk to us about “The Witches of Salem.” We of the twenty-first century are aware that witches do not fly across the sky on brooms, but in 1692 charity and mercy – and plain good sense – were all cast aside in persecution of suspected witches in colonial Massachusetts. The witch hunt would swell and burn through Salem Village and neighboring towns. How were witches identified? What happened to them?  And who were those who were executed that terrible year?  Come learn a little bit about them and their meddling neighbors at our virtual meeting, Thursday, October 8 at 7 p.m.  https://OlyGenSoc.org
