The Connecticut State Library (CSL) focuses on Connecticut and therefore will have more resources on the Connecticut Witch Trials. These occurred before the Salem trials.
Below are some examples of resources for studying the Connecticut Witch Trials and topics related to witchcraft in Colonial period. This is not to be a complete/comprehensive list. Many of the resources are not online, and are in restricted collections (must be used on site at CSL) that should be requested in advance by contacting the History & Genealogy Unit (860-757-6580).
It is recommended that you begin your research with our History & Genealogy unit.
These are just a few suggested items that might help with your research. It is recommended to always search our catalog and archive finding aids.
