International Ghost Hunters Society
March 20, 2005 from Deming, New Mexico
Dr. Dave’s Notes:
We depart Deming, New Mexico on Monday as we slowly make our way
toward Albuquerque and the Southwest Ghost Conference next weekend. The
Conference has been sold out for about three weeks, earlier than any of
our other conferences. We will be stopping along the way upward to
investigate a few haunted sites that have interested us over the years.
The weather is pleasant and warm, which makes it far easier to conduct
investigations compared to snowy or rainy weather.
After the conference we will be doing an in-depth investigation at the
Salinas Mission and the Casamero Pueblo outside of Grants, New Mexico. We
are also looking for Newsletter readers who have any experiences at the
Salinas Missions or at the Casamero Pueblo ruins. We will be doing a week
long investigation of three old Missions in New Mexico and at the
Casamero Pueblo ruins and would like to include the experiences of other
IGHS ghost researchers at these sites.
We now have received several cases of our newest book, America's
Haunting Volume One: Haunted America Speaks from our Publisher so
that we can offer them direct from our web site. Each book will be
autographed by us and sent by USPS Priority Mail with Delivery
Confirmation for $18.95. The shipping charges are the Postal Priority
Mail and Delivery Confirmation fees with no handling charge. We ship
within 24 hours of receipt of orders unless we are traveling and then
it’s the following day. This is the first in a series of ground-breaking,
keep-you-up-all-night books from real life ghost hunters. Augmented with
photographs and maps, and including a URL for listening to many of the
ghost voices discussed, America's Haunting Volume One: Haunted
America Speaks is a must-own for anyone interested the
paranormal. The book can be ordered from our web site by going to:

We are busy working Book 3 of the series and will consider guest authors
for this book as we did for Book 1 and 2. If you receive this Newsletter,
you will be considered if you submit a story of an investigation that
stands out in your mind as something special. Write up the story; include
any historical details about the site and how you conducted the
investigation. Please include any photos of paranormal anomalies captured
or EVPs of any ghost voice recordings. Send this to us at
firstname.lastname@example.org and we
will do the editing and any correction necessary. You will be credited as
the author of the story in our book. If we decide to include your story,
we will send you a release form that is required by our publisher.
We have recently gotten some wonderful ghost photos from Carol and Clint
Dickens showing pink, green, yellow and white supercharged orbs in motion
and have these photos posted in our Free Ghost Photos section. This is an
amazing feat considering most of us will capture supercharged orbs in
motion maybe once or twice a year, but Carol and Clint are photographing
them almost each they investigate this old cemetery. Carol is a recent
graduate of our Ghost Researcher Home Study Course and is setting a fine
example of professionalism.
Imagine being in a Mausoleum that is semi dark and snapping a photo with
the flash off and expecting to see just your friend and all of a sudden
finding three orbs moving about, each leaving a bright contrail. Your
first reaction is to look up and wonder when in tar nation those elusive
spirits might be. I suspect that they were visible to your camera not to
your eyes because they exist in a light spectrum beyond the range of our
human eyes. It is for this reason that dogs and cats can see and hear
these spirits of the dead while most of us cannot. Take a moment and
check out Roger Wheat’s Haunted Mausoleum in our Free Ghost Photos
section. We thank Roger for his contribution to our ever growing
collection of ghost photos, the largest on the Internet collected during
the past ten years.
Our investigations have ranged from the Pacific Northwest, across the
United States and from Florida to Pennsylvania. We discovered the monster
mosquitoes in Minnesota that many people thought were angels because
their photos showed wings, but again it is hard to dispel their religious
beliefs that the angels were only mosquitoes close to the camera lens. We
have seen the low rolling fog that pours into Gettysburg on a cold night
and how the crickets will suddenly stop chirping in the valley of
Our EVP recordings span the haunts across the United States. We have
investigated the flood city of Johnstown with Nancy Coplin and Debbie
Harris where we recorded the voices of the flood victims of the great
flood of 1889 that killed over 2,000 people. We worked with Jason Snider
and members of the Crawford County Ghost Hunters Society in America’s
heartland. We enjoyed conducting investigations at his favorite sites and
found the grave of Mary whose voice Jason Snider has recorded that is
calling for help. Mary’s grave had been knocked over and perhaps she was
asking for help in being acknowledged.
We reflect on the investigation at Andersonville in southwest Georgia
where Sharon actually saw the apparition of a POW soldier. The EVP
recordings were consistent with comments one would expect to find at this
Confederate run POW camp for Union prisoners.
We recorded moving ghost lights at Iverson’s Pits on the Gettysburg
Battlefield that has become legendary. The ghost lights moved across the
stationary Sony NightShot camcorder. The ghost lights passed in front of
trees and behind trees, therefore giving us distance from the camcorder.
The ghost lights merged together as one large orb and separated back into
three individual orbs, all recorded by the camcorder.
Near Rainier, Oregon, Sharon snapped two 35 mm photos that contained the
full body apparition of the Blue Lady of Woodbine Cemetery. She has also
recorded several ectoplasmic mists at this same cemetery during various
previous investigations. Others have heard ghostly voices and someone
singing in this old cemetery on the hill.
In Congress, Arizona, we recorded the voices of children at an old
pioneer cemetery and over 40 ghost voices at an old stone cabin within an
abandoned ghost town. These ghost voices were of miners who worked deep
inside the earth with pick axes as they searched for gold. We
investigated this old ghost town almost daily for two months as we
continued to discover more foundations and broken glass and chards of old
At the old abandoned 1916 Camp Cody in Deming, New Mexico, we record
ghostly voices coming from the area where the Holy Cross Hospital once
stood. We discovered the truth about the haunted sanitarium that started
an urban legend that spanned several generations. We search out the
strange and the paranormal as we seek to understand about the spirits of
We share in our Home Study Courses what we have learned in life. Our
Certified Ghost Hunter program will teach its students all about the
spirit realm, not the folklore or myths, but what we have found to be
valid. We share personal insights and knowledge that we have gained over
the combined 30 years of specializing in this field. We share our
understanding regarding the psychology of earth bound spirits; why the
common myth of exorcism is not valid. We teach what is not common
knowledge about ghosts and what knowledge has been lost over time. We
explain why the traditional approach to ghost hunting fails to succeed.
When we listen to other ghost hunters being interviewed on talk radio
programs and they are unable answer any of the questions asked by the
host. It is one thing for someone to represent themselves as an expert in
the field of ghost hunting, but totally another if they don't have
knowledge of more in-depth research in which they can answer questions of
some complexity for the listeners.
The serious ghost hunter will want to know more and that is where our
courses come into play. We can teach the student everything that we have
learned and are learning. We continually update our material and we seek
to share the knowledge we gain, with those who want to know more.
The Home Study Course for Paranormal Investigator focuses on Sharon’s
doctoral thesis and all that she learned after losing her husband. She
had no idea what grief was all about and discovered that most people
don't either. Our society just does not discuss death so the process of
grieving is very misunderstood as is death. Part of the work that we do
is to help folks understand what transpires after losing a loved one so
they understand that all the emotions they are experiencing are normal,
though they feel like they are losing their minds. In writing the second
part of the Home Study Course, we have been able to help many people come
to a deeper understanding of spirits and the process of death when they
experience losing someone dear to them. In turn, they can help others as
Many times a ghost researcher will go to investigate someone's home, and
find that they have recently lost someone to death. There are a lot of
questions about the new activity, about the way they are feeling, and in
having knowledge, the investigator is able to help the people understand
both sides of the problem. We can anchor those we love here on this
plane, by loving them so much we refuse to let go. When a Mother loses a
child, she does not want to let go and in her misery can anchor the
child's spirit here. It is as important to understand the necessity of
grieving and letting go as it is to understand activity taking place. It
is part of what we are all about and I've walked that road myself. We
feel like there is a need to talk about death and afterlife and all areas
of losing someone because it all goes hand-in-hand for healing.
In our Part 3 of the Home Study Program we teach folks how to conduct EVP
investigations and how to analyze the ghost voices they record. Most
people can record these ghost voices but they have problems in
understanding what is being said by these spirits. Once capturing an EVP
of tape or digital media, what does a person do with it? The course takes
the student step-by-step through the process of analyzing and bringing
the voices into clarity. The course teaches how to use the two Acoustica
versions 2.25 and 3.2 for filtering and analyzing ghost voices. It has
proven to eliminate the frustration of evaluating EVP.
Our Home Study Program is unlike any other study program offered on the
Internet today. We have personal experiences relating to life and death
that others have not experienced. We are engaged in this work full time,
we have no other day job. We travel, we write and we share what we learn
with our members and our visitors to Ghostweb.com. We have over 4.6
million visitors since we started our web site, and we grow daily as more
people discover our site and our mission; there is life after death and
the ghosts are that evidence of life after death.
Dr. Sharon’s Notes:
Though the term EVP, electronic voice phenomena may be fairly new,
the idea of recording for voices from beyond has been around for decades.
Though most of the research has been conducted throughout Britain,
Scandinavia and Europe, many distinguished researchers and scientists,
under the strictest of test conditions, did careful research.
Unknown to many, more modern day researchers in America, the electronic
equipment used from the beginning of this research included videotape
recorders, voice printers and oscilloscopes. Because of the concern over
radio broadcasts being picked up on the recording tapes, great care and
precautions were taken to prevent this type of interference. What is less
known is that aside from the outstanding scientists, sound experts and
electronic specialists, the Vatican also became involved!
With the onset of research into voice phenomena, a regular tape recorder
with fresh, new tape and a microphone were set up in the usual way.
During the recording sessions, no sounds are heard, yet in replaying the
recorded tape, faint voices of unknown origin mysteriously appeared on
the tape. Though seemingly impossible, the voices, nonetheless, were
there then and are there as we record today.
Once people began hearing about this remarkable phenomenon it became not
only a popular topic for discussion, it also became heatedly
controversial. Scientists, clergy and average citizens argued over what
they heard being said, but mostly people wanted to know where these
voices were coming from? There were no definite answers, but there were
some who attributed the voice phenomena to PK. Others felt they were
voices from UFO’s whereas others felt sure the United States CIA was
involved somehow. Others felt they were voices from beyond the grave, the
dead trying to make contact with the living. Of course with the research
being done and the results being obtained, there was a whirlwind of
theological controversy taking place. So how did this all begin
In 1959, Swedish artisan, Friedrich Jorgensen decided to go out and
record birds singing in the countryside. When he played the tape back,
along with the bird songs he also heard a male voice, speaking of
‘nocturnal bird songs’ in Norwegian. He wondered if he had somehow picked
up a radio broadcast on the tape. He set out to do more recordings,
curious if he would obtain the same results. Though he heard no audible
voices while recording, when playing the tape back, he heard voices and
they seemed to be trying to reveal significant information. The voices
addressed Jorgensen by name, giving him personal information, which no
radio broadcast would have been airing. Many of the voices claimed to be
deceased friends and relatives.
Jorgensen continued experimenting at his home for several years, gaining
cooperation of many scientists, including Drs. Bender and Karger whose
names today are associated with the recording of voice phenomena.
Jorgensen also had very close connections with the Vatican as he had done
much filming of documentaries in Italy. The Catholic Church was
interested in the voice phenomena and it was stated they would keep a
close check on the paranormal voice recordings.
Dr. Konstantin Raudive, a former student of Dr. Carl Jung, met Friedrich
Jorgensen in 1965 and learned the various techniques Jorgensen had
employed for recording the voice phenomenon. From 1965 forward, Raudive
devoted himself to the phenomena of voice recordings. By 1974, Raudive
had recorded well over 100,000 phrases picked up on magnetic tape
recordings, in various languages, some of which are unknown language even
today. The messages are normally ten to twelve words long in a mixture of
languages that discourage the possibilities of having picked up radio
broadcasts. Many voices address Jorgensen and Raudive personally at times
even by childhood nicknames.
Because of direct interaction with the researchers, the possibility of
the recordings being radio broadcasts is almost eliminated totally.
Interpretation of some of the foreign languages recorded have come into
question yet it is the voices speaking clearly, such as a name or
nickname that give rise to the genuine phenomenon as being just that, the
Researchers and many in the scientific community who are working with EVP
have come to believe these voices come from beyond the grave. With
studies done with widows and widowers, doctors have found that nearly 50%
have expressed having had some form of communication with their deceased
loved one. An American psychologist and a Welsh physician have estimated
that 50% of normal people have seen or communicated with deceased friends
These average people are not mystics or psychics; they are normal, hard
working, common folks you see every day. The figures are changing all the
time as to the experiences people are having with loved ones who have
passed on and folks who are experiencing strange phenomena in their homes
and places of business. The reason is due to the fact that people are not
hiding these experiences any longer out of fear of ridicule. People
everywhere are finding that others too, are experiencing the paranormal
as it is more common than folks ever dreamed it was.
So, does communication by electronic means really seem so far fetched?
The only questionable means of recording EVP seems to be when scientists
set up to record off of radio static (white noise) since by its very
nature, the radio could be picking up another radio station and not some
discarnate voice from the Etheric world.

Dr. Dave’s Recommendation for Spyware/Adware/Registry protection:
I have used several different brands of spyware and adware removers
and I have found one of the most effective removers of these malware
infections is from a company that will scan your computer for free. Take
a moment and have this company scan your computer by going to
www.nuker.com/enter/in.php?aff=ghostwebjl&pg=1. The first time I
used this program, it found over 300 infections in the registry alone.
None of my other adware or spyware programs found these infections.
I also am using their Error Nuker for removing errors from my registry. I
constantly add and remove programs from my computer and most of the
software companies do a lousy job at removing all of their software when
it is uninstalled. I recommend you try this Error Nuker for a free scan
by going to
http://hop.clickbank.net/?ghostwebjl/errornuker and see for yourself
how many errors were residing in your registry. It is better to be safe
than sorry when it comes to scanning your computer for infections caused
by spyware and adware. Why not keep your registry clean and healthy to
avoid serious problems down the road.
