Depends on roof rafters size & condition. Then it will depend on how big of a dormer you want to build. Would not recommend taking out more than 1 rafter. I would sister (attach another board to it) each rafter on the sides of the dormers to help hold the roof from sagging. (unthinkable if 2x4 construction unless it is truss) For the age of the house...I doubt it.

Good luck.......
