I have debating about making this thread for a while but I figured it couldn't hurt to post some info and request some help.
Ok, this story is about my mother's house were she has been living for the past year or so. Over the past 5 to 6 months, she and her boyfriend have
experienced strange and regular paranormal occurences. Little things, like cabinets opening, weird sounds, pictures falling and breaking, strange
lights, that sort of thing. She soon found out that two elderly women died in the house. Well, it just so happens that she works with and is friends
with a woman who investigates paranormal activities and has been doing so for quite a few years. My mother's friend is assited by her husband and her
sisters who have also been doing the same kind of research for a number of years. My mother asked them to investigate the house and find out if it is
So a month or two back, they did an investigation. They were very thorough with it, using recording equipment to catch EVP's and apparitions, and
taking tons of pictures, although I'm not sure if they used EMF readers or not. They also performed a seance (I think they are Wiccan but I'm not
sure about that, I'll ask my mom).
During the seance they asked whatever inhabited the house various questions, like who they were and how they were connected to the house. At one
point, the woman's husband went into a sort of trance until the end of the seance. When he awoke, he imediately said the names Harry and Harold.
Later during the investigation, one of the women saw the form of a man wearing a military suit with a hat on. She confirmed that the man was Harry
from which the husband had earlier named. The investigation ended and they left to analyze the data they collected.
It turned out that they had several pictures of orbs of light and several pictures of strange mists that were not seen at the time. They also had some
EVP recordings from the investigation.
Now, I have not seen any of this data or evidence myself, but my mother has and she confirms that there is some strange stuff in the pictures and
recordings. We are currently awaiting for copies of the pictures, video, and sound recordings so I can review them and post them on ATS.
I also plan to do my own little investigation, minus the seance, very soon and would welcome any suggestion from anyone that has doen this sort of
thing before. I have a taperecorder and a high-quality digital camera, but I know how often that reflections off dust particles can look like orbs, as
I have taken many pictures of dust orbs myself. If anyone could give me some adivce as to what I can do to avoid false orbs or voice recordings, I
would really appreciate it.
I'll try to put up some pics and maybe recordings soon, but I don't know when I'll get them. And one last note, I found out that my mother's
friend will be doing another investigation sometime soon and I will make every attempt to attend this one.
Thanks for reading.
