At my altar tonight and working ancestral magick. These 3 striking women are my great grandmothers (2 of them) and a great great grandmother. I’m in awe when I look at their pictures and gain strength from them. All 3 look so strong and confident to me. Perhaps they too were witches…?
I have a small photo album of my mom & grandmother’s family including my great grandparents & great aunt. I love the album & it always makes me feel good to look at the pictures.

I have more pictures that go further back, but those are a few of my favorites. They always give me such good feeling to have them.
Such good pics!
I’m a quasi genealogy & I guess some kind of history nerd old photos fascinate me. I love the ones you posted Anything to do with the way of life before the 1980s, intrigues me & the farther back you go, the more I want to know.
I also have a “family” Bible from the last half of the 1800s, through my mothers line of the family. There are some old pictures from when they were on like a stiff, paper, almost cardboard/board. They don’t have names on them, but I know they are related to me
I know that I have A LOT of Celtic history throughout the UK & Germanic Europe through both of my parents. My fathers line diectly through Ireland, the Munster region & Northern Ireland, plus small amounts of Scotland. Also Italy, Sicily, Greece… that area from my father’s side exclusively also.
So its not a far stretch that I have some witches in my family history too. I had never really thought about it, my family didn’t really follow structured religion after my brother & I went through Confirmation with the Catholic Church. Plus, it was just my immediate (father, brother, mom) family & my grandmother (father’s mom) in our lives. Then I had started my own little family & life changed as my brother & I left the nest to have our own.
Those are some impressive pictures- and gosh, look at those amazing outfits! There are definitely fun and freeing things about modern fashion, but I can’t help but wish it was still acceptable to walk around with a feathered hat outside of the renaissance faire. They’re just so cool and impressive!
Thats beautiful!! They do look strong and self assured!!
I have many photos of my ancestors. I’ll have to go through some and share.
Thanks for sharing your amazing photos!!
You have a very good looking family.
I’m the same when it comes to being fascinated with anything dealing with the older, the better!! I would love to jump throughout history!!! Thanks for sharing your photos!!!
