Subject: RE: Need Info: Seventh son of a seventh son
My grandmother was a seventh daughter, and according to family lore, people did seek her out to tell the future. She had already passed away before I was born, but according to my mother, she had some degree of second-sight. I guess she found it very troubling when she saw something bad, so she tried not to use it. I wish I'd had the change to meet her (she died in 1935). Now that the culture is slightly more sympathetic towards people with special gifts, I wonder how she'd handle it if she were alive today.
