Maps of Salem Villiage and Witch Trials, and Links to other information.

 

Here is a link for maps of Salem Village with property owners name. It is a very good resource.

This is a link to an online book of the first Massachusetts census taken 1765.  It does not give names of land owner, but it is a very good representation of just how many adult males there were living in Massachusetts.   http://archive.org/stream/earlycensusmaki00bentgoog#page/n30/mode/2up

One of the things that can be confusing is what the area looked like so here is a link where maps can be found of the New World Massachusetts Bay and New England around 1600.

The 2nd Map link is not working - please fix ;-), it sounds interesting.

I want to point out this book with the 1765 Census also includes York & Lincoln counties (now Maine) and enumerates the number of Indians and slaves in the towns, which is interesting to follow. The book also has a c1741 enumeration showing number of slaves in each town and again includes York county.

Thank you very much for sharing these links.
