Halloween Special: 17th Century Witchcraft Trials in Connecticut?
Where in Connecticut did Witchcraft Trials take place? Were any trials held in Hebron? To speak about CT witchcraft, the Hebron Historical Society is bringing Dick Tomlinson to Old Town Hall on October 16th. The doors will open at 7:00 for a "meet and greet", with the presentation beginning at 7:30.
Dick Tomlinson is well qualified to speak about "Understanding Our Connecticut Ancestors Through Witchcraft Trials". As a historian and author, Tomlinson has researched many subjects. His most recent book is appropriately entitled Witchcraft Prosecution: Chasing the Devil in Connecticut.
Mr. Tomlinson's forebears have lived in Connecticut since 1633. He is an active member of the CT Historical Society, the CT Society of Genealogists, the Association for the Study of Connecticut History, and the Descendants of the Founders of Ancient Windsor.
Do join us on October 16th, 7:00 at Old Town Hall and learn about this fascinating subject. Programs are always free for Historical Society members. Donations, which help support our programs and properties, are greatly appreciated.
