I am hoping someone can help me with this. I have recently learned that my mom's
great grandmother was a witch. Since both of my parents are deceased my aunt (my dad's sister) had some papers from my mom that my dad never showed me.
I don't speak portuguese but my aunt showed me the paper anyhow.
I picked out the word "Brujeria" or "Brujera".
I asked an older neighbor from the neighborhood I grew up in. She looked at the paper and her eyes got wide. She said something in portuguese that sounded like
"curse" and "black dog".
The paper had the date 1860's. It looked like a letter, but wasn't really legible.
My old neighbor's daughter told me to destroy the paper, that nothing good could come of it and told me to go home and pray. They are the old school catholics.
I grew up in a mostly predominant portuguese neighborhood. I would like to know if
anyone can help me identify what my old neighbor might have been talking about.
Wasn't sure where to post this.
Thanks for your help in advance.
