I would like to examine some of the Massachusetts documents relating to various Salem Witchcraft trial victims.  Do you know if Massachusetts has digitized these records yet?


Many of the records for the Commonwealth associated with the infamous Salem Witchcraft trials have been digitized.  These records are not available from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  These records have been placed on line by the University of Virginia.  Besides the records from the Mass. State Archives collection you will find other items to aide you in your online research.  The website is free and available online at:
