Some people really need to MoveOn. Riding the way back machine to get your 15 minutes of fame is a little over the top.
...great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother...? Give me a break.

Does she have some new evidence to bring to light?

The witches in The Crucible WERE witches. Some of them made false accusations of others while under oath.
Odd that The Crucible is used to smear the investigations of Communist activity in the United States. There WERE Communists in this country and quite a few were allied with the Soviet Union (knowingly or unknowingly) to subvert the United States government and the Constitution.
I don’t know this woman or her ancestor. Were there any witches in the colonies or were they all trumped up?
Miller’s message is that there is no crime in being a witch or a Communist.

Fine (but how do we know they were wrongly convicted?)
Just tossing it in to see if it floats?
Look on the bright side...Salem is a tourist attraction.

Many or maybe even most of these cases were before CT was independent. So perhaps we can get the Queen to pay reparations,

Do they have any evidence to overturn the verdicts?

say what you will about the witch trials. But we’ve not had a witch attack in over 300 years.

(The name's Bond. James Bond. James Bond Jovi.)
Descendants of some of the 11 people executed for witchcraft in mid-1600s Connecticut are hoping for a little magic of their own: that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will issue a proclamation clearing their distant relatives' names and condemning the prosecutions and killings.
Gov. Malloy is the state in such RUIN that you are working on BS now?

(Yes, Obama, I had help with my business. MY CUSTOMERS!)
Given the scientific knowledge of the time one can almost understand why people would have been afraid of people with epilepsy,schizophrenia,etc.And fear’s the motivation for lots of crazy,irrational stuff.”Pardon”? Gimme a break.Half the kids of the state are unemployed...perhaps that’s a more pressing matter.
