Cracks in Ceiling and wall

Hello I have a one story house on a basement in Michigan.
I bought the house about 9months ago. After we moved in we started to notice cracks in the ceiling. Long hairline cracks. They have been more and more appearing. It kind of looks (this is my best estimate) like the the cracks are showing up around the sheets of drywall. For instance there will be a long crack down the middle of our living room and then there will be another one perpendicular to that.

Then just yesterday I noticed a small hairline crack under the window in my living room. I would attribute it to some settling, but with the ceiling I don't know what it could be.

The House was build in 1950.

Please any ideas would be helpful.
