We are excited to welcome you to the first PDA Reunion to be held in beautiful and historic New England! We have a great schedule shaping up that will include visits to the historic cities of Boston and Salem as well as family history research opportunities. We have contracted with a wonderful hotel in Wakefield that is central for exploring New England’s beauty, culture and history. Reserve your room using the Hotel link above and make your driving or flying plans using the Directions link.
Some pages linked above are still being developed as we are still in the planning and contracting stages, including the Registration Form, so check back in March. Meanwhile, print the Poster and put it on your fridge as a reminder. Share copies of the poster with your relatives so they will also know about this gathering of descendants of the Poingdestre family.
Discover Boston and its History
The historical tour of Boston is being planned for Thursday. 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. There may be some time on Wednesday for researching at the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
Spend a day in Salem, Massachusetts by the waterfront
Plans are in the works 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.
See you in August!
