Celebrate genealogy and ancestral connections to Salem, Massachusetts, during a weekend of lectures, tours, and research.
Residents and visitors are invited to celebrate their ancestral and immigrant connections to Salem, Massachusetts during the second annual Salem Ancestry Days celebration, which will be held April 29-May 2, 2022. The weekend will feature lectures, tours, research opportunities, and information on the people who connect us all to Salem.
Whether one is considering the Salem Witch Trials, author Nathaniel Hawthorne, abolitionist Charlotte Forten, navigator Nathaniel Bowditch, architect Samuel McIntire, or one of the families that left their mark on Salem’s maritime history, there are remarkable connections to be made to the people who created the Salem story. Event organizers also hope connections are made to the native persons, the Naumkeag, who lived on the land prior to the arrival of Roger Conant and the Dorchester Company, and the enslaved or indentured persons who were not in Salem by choice.
