Genetics can be a funny thing sometimes.  In my case for example, I look like my mom but when I had my DNA tested I was genetically more my dad.  In the case of my niece and nephew, they both have the most beautiful shade of red hair.  Apparently, my sister-in-laws grandfather had a red beard…but no one is positive why these two won the genetic lottery with their hair colour.  

 

Sometimes genetics can lead to some strange things though, and in the case of a family from Kentucky in the United States - they are now famous because of it.

I love to travel.  I love experiencing other cultures, eating new foods, and seeing new locations.  I enjoy traveling to places with a lot of history.  I love to learn about the people and events that came before me, and how this changed the world I live in today.  Sometimes history isn’t just history though.  Sometimes that history is still alive in some form, and sometimes you may end up seeing that history...face to face.

The legend of the Bell Witch is one of the most famous in American lore.  It is story about a spirit who tormented a family in Tennessee over 200 years ago, and this story has been the inspiration of multiple books, tv shows, and movies.  What makes this story stand out is that unlike other paranormal lore, this story is supported by eyewitness accounts, court affidavits, and documentation that was written by those involved.

Between the years of 1482 and 1782; thousands of people were accused of witchcraft and were executed.  People believed that witches were everywhere plotting with the devil to cause harm.  They started appearing in local lore and in fairytales as a versatile symbol for evil and transgression, and by the late 16th and 17th centuries people of all classes believed that witches were everywhere.  They were a deadly threat to life and of the divine order.  

 

It is these beliefs that helped develop the legend of witches, but also resulted in innocent people dying.

The Palace of Versailles has a special place in my heart.  My nine times great grandfather managed the farms at this location that was the royal seat of power for over 100 years.  When you walk towards the Palace of Versailles there are a few things you will realize right away…that this was the location for opulence, and political intrigue.  But for Eleanor Jourdain and Charlotte Moberly who were hoping for a quick trip into history, they found themselves transported into the past where they saw the long dead Queen of France - Marie Antoinette.

Episode 47 - Holes to Hell

Some people believe that the afterlife can only be accessed by a spiritual means, and others currently and throughout history believe that you can reach the underworld using portals on Earth.  Some of these gateways involve Christian concepts of hell while others are said to lead to some very unpleasant afterlives alternatives.  Today we are going to talk about some of these locations, and what you may endure if you choose to do a little exploring.
