I must have been very good because Santa got me two nice gifts from the NEHGS catalog, and one from I don't know where, but it made me squeal with delight. I suppose only genealogists and historians would squeal over a book with over 1,000 pages of images and transcriptions of documents from the 1692 Salem witch hysteria. I've been using this book at libraries, and now I have it for my very own use at home! This is Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt, edited by Bernard Rosenthal, now available in paperback and much more affordable than the original hardcover edition.
|Over 1,000 pages!|
From the NEHGS bookstore I received The Great Migration Directory: Immigrants to New England, 1620 - 1640 by Robert Charles Anderson, published earlier in 2015. I've been looking forward to this book for a long time.
And to go along with the directory, I've been enrolled in a subscription to the Great Migration Newsletter. Thank you, Santa Claus! I love my new gifts!
