+ OUR PROMISE
"[W]e justly fear that we were sadly deluded and mistaken, for which
we are much disquieted and distressed in our minds; and do therefore humbly beg forgiveness."
--Petit Jurors, "Declaration of Regret"
We remember the Salem Witch Trials and the other heretical and witch trials that were held in colonial Massachusetts, and their participants by associating their families and preserving their lineages. We share commercial, genealogical and historical information about the trials and its participants. We educate others about our group and promise.

Applying for accepted membership or descendant membership with Bloodlines of Salem is easy. In fact, it's a lot easier than most hereditary family-history groups.
If you wish to apply for an accepted membership, we require: 1) your desire to be an accepted member, 2) your agreement with our promise and 3) your name, city of residence and contact information. You won't be charged a registration fee, may use the postnominal abbreviation "MBoS," and may request at any time to cancel or change your accepted membership.
If you wish to apply for a descendant membership, we require: 1) your desire to be a descendant member, 2) your agreement with our promise, 3) your name, city of residence and contact information, and 4) proof beyond doubt of your descent from or relationship with one or more participants of the trials with a pedigree. You won't be charged a registration fee, may use the postnominal abbreviation "DBoS," and may request at any time to cancel or change your descendant membership.
Your pedigree should include your name and date of birth, and the names, dates of birth and dates of death of your ancestors or relatives to and including the ancestor or relative who was a trials participant. If the pedigree can be verified using online-genealogy services, we will approve your application. If any part of the pedigree can't be verified, your accepted membership will be registered, but we will invite you to provide additional digital or printed proof before your descendant membership will be registered.
We require the following pedigree form:
(Person named first) was born on (date) at (location) and died on (date) at (location); and was married to (name) on (date) at (location), who was born on (date) at (location) and died on (date) at (location). The said (person named first) was a (son or daughter, or relative) of:
(Parent or relative of person named first) who was born on (date) at (location) and died on (date) at (location); and was married to (name) on (date) at (location), who was born on (date) at (location) and died on (date) at (location). The said (parent or relative of person named first) was a (son or daughter, or relative) of:
(Repeat for every generation of pedigree).
We prefer all applications and correspondence be sent by e-mail messages and attachments. You may send your accepted-membership or descendant-membership application to us by e-mail message at:

Bloodlines of Salem

"I am no witch. I am innocent. I know nothing of it."
A person who registers a membership or descendant membership with Bloodlines of Salem is eligible to download and/or print a corresponding certificate. A certificate may be personalized with the member's name and birth year, and must include a valid membership number. Our membership certificates are designed to be completed by each member. There is unfortunately no software which allows us to provide a descendant membership or membership certificate which may be completed and saved on computer by a member. So, we provide it as a PDF document which may be printed and completed by the member in the way that the member chooses. Some members prefer to complete the certificate in their own handwriting so that it becomes a personalized document that can be shared with future generations. Others use colorful paper and inks. It is a matter of choice.
To download a certificate, right-click on it with your mouse (or control-click if using a single-button mouse or trackpad) and choose the "Save Image As..." menu command to save the certificate in a certain folder (usually the computer "Downloads" folder). After the certificate is downloaded, you may print and complete it as you choose.
