“Salem Possessed in Retrospect,”
By Paul Boyer and Stephen Nissenbaum
Another Ditto-master handout: “How to Use the [Unpublished] Probate Records of Essex County, Mass.” (November 17, 1969). Students were encouraged to make research trips to the Essex County Courthouse in Salem, and several did so as part of their final projects. This handout supplies detailed logistical instructions for such trips.
