Mysterious fingerprints

This story was submitted to the site by ACK3loves from PA.
My children and I have all witnessed fingerprints on our mirrors after they have been cleaned and after showering and on my son's door. We had our home built in 2014 and my youngest daughter saw a spirit of a little girl in her room. She slept with me for the longest time.

When she told my oldest son who has an apartment in the lower level of our home she saw a ghost, he immediately asked her if it was a little girl because he saw her as well. He is an empath and has seen ghosts (not so nice ones) stalk him in his room at an Amish farm we lived on.

When I was in high school, my parents and I lived with a ghost and I witnessed a shadow person walking down the hallway past my bedroom and had the feeling of being watched constantly and had a pressure of someone on my back constantly when I went to the basement to do laundry or to the attic to go through storage.

Many strange things happened in the house that were not explainable and my dad was a skeptic but he began to question what was happening. My husband is a huge skeptic and refuses to believe the prints are paranormal or from a spirit so my children and I keep the discussions and concerns/fears to ourselves.
After my two children saw the girl we also would hear knocking on windows and doors and no one would be outside and some knocks would be within the house and everyone would be asleep when the one that heard the knocking would get up to check. We would also hear some very strange noises in the woods behind our house at night like a world wind but only behind our house and it was a very uneasy feeling because you had no idea what could be conjuring up that constant, fast disturbance of leaves and limbs breaking, only in one area in our development behind our house. Definitely no animals.

I burned sage through our house and everything was quiet for a very long time. I recently went to the cemetery to place new flowers on my parents headstone and took miscellaneous pictures of older tombstones and as I got a weird feeling next to a very old grave I told my son I was ready to move along and he said he was also because he was getting strange feelings.

We got home and I looked at the pictures and when I got scared/felt weird, there was a strange light source that came through on the one and only picture. I took several pictures on different angles and no other shot had that light source, and I had no weird sensation at any other spot in the cemetery that day other than the very old one as we were leaving.

After that day is when things started getting stirred up at our house again with fingerprints. I had a nightmare that I woke up screaming and my two daughters heard me. It was sort of a joke because of how I was screaming...but I was honestly scared to be screaming loud in my sleep. My daughter and son both had scratches after this dream.

I wanted to attach photos but am unsure how to do so. If someone can advise how to, I can upload them so you can see what these things are. Thank you so much!

Sorry to be a supernatural buzz killer but when a household has kids, pets and/or humans living there you will get things like finger prints. If the prints are more than smudges i would certainly break out my barney fife jr detective fingerprint kit and see which person leaves them and hand them a paper towel and windex, Kids ( and many adults ) see things that arent really their that they are sure are real, its called "imagination/delusion" even hallucinations. "Strange" and "unexplainable" are just opinion and speculative, how much research was done to learn of the actual explanation or was ... [More]

You've got some strange things going on there and interesting story.   Have you researched about the ground the house was built on?  That might explain the sightings of the little girl ghost.

No normal human could make a fingerprint... And if only the traces were in some way uniquely identifiable...   Oh, wait.

@ACK3loves      Thank you for sharing your experiences. Although I have no specific advice that I can give you from afar, your story helps me in forming a clearer picture of what may be 'out there' in reality and its prevalence. So again, just thanks for sharing. Your experiences seem so similar to hundreds of other cases I've heard in my decades of interest in Unexplained Mysteries.  I guess all I can say is to focus on your and your families mental peace and happiness and not let this bother you too much.

Its a demon. There, that's the only reasonable and desired answer.

Unfortunately, it would see that this woman has probably worked her kids into this state of mind. Probably watching too many ghost shows on TV and youtube. No other explanation seems to be considered and the husband thinks it's nonsense. If there were ghosts or shadow people, or whatever running around, wouldn't the husband have experienced this paranormal activity? Maybe they're afraid of him, so they don't come around when he's in the room. I'm not trying to be a buzzkill here, but the way the story plays out, this woman seems to desperately want this to all be paranormal and so it is. Kids ... [More]

I throughly enjoy people who post replies how they don’t want to be “buzz kills” yet do the exact opposite in their comments. Always bothers me when someone says they don’t want to do or be something and then do it anyways, it’s contradicting.  As to the OP, your experience is your own and should be looked into more by people who have established training in detecting paranormal presences. Frankly, there are so many things we cannot see with our limited perceptions, visually or otherwise. Believe what you will and I hope for you and your families safety.  As for the buzz killers,...
