Early American Witches
Does your nose sympathetically twitch whenever you watch "Bewitched"? Does Arthur Miller's The Crucible strike too close to home? Check into the Associated Daughters of Early American Witches www.adeaw.org.

The organization, formed in 1987, is open to women who can prove they have a colonial American ancestor who was accused of or tried or executed for the practice of witchcraft in the 17th century. The group's Web site includes a list of documented ancestors accused of witchcraft, both male and female. Most were caught up in the hysteria that hit Salem, Mass., but some were accused in other New England states, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.
