Here are some highlights of activities during this year's Reunion:
New England Historic Genealogical Society
On Wednesday, prior to the Reunion, we will visit the NEHGS in Boston with an orientation to their resources followed by time on your own to research your family history interests. We will meet in the hotel and travel as a group. See the Schedule for details.
Discover Boston and its History
Using a hop-on/hop-off trolley system, we will visit historical Boston on Thursday. We will take the train to Boston. Then board the trolley for your self-guided tour, hopping-off at the sites you want to see. The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston entices visitors with world-renowned cultural, educational, and recreational attractions. One of America's oldest cities and the capital of Massachusetts, Boston was founded in 1630. See the Schedule for details.
Spend a day in Salem, Massachusetts by the waterfront
All aboard our bus for an historical tour and lunch in Salem, including a possible visit to the Custom House, Witch Museum, or maybe a harbor cruise from Pickering Wharf on Friday. We may also visit the burial site or the former home of Ann Pudeator (Poingdestre) who was hanged as a witch in October 1692. Salem was the seat of early government of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The city has a rich maritime history and is where Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote some of his novels. See the Schedule for details.
We are looking forward to everyone coming to see us in New England!
