Just in time for Halloween, we visited Boston to look at old grave markers in historic cemeteries.

You’ll find the gravestone carvings to be symbolic of the period’s changing spiritual beliefs…

To learn, we sometimes need to visit the past to examine research that’s preceded the work of modern ghost investigators.

We were thrilled to peruse an original study from London’s Society for Psychical Research on haunted houses. (It inspired our Best Ways to Prove Ghosts Are Real.)

Learn about the 1883 Report on Haunted Houses.

Help Ghosts? Louis Charles’ TV Interview Says ‘Yes’

October 29th, 2010 I was interviewed by host Robin of Fox 8 – Cleveland’s The Robin Swoboda Show. I had a wonderful time and finally had the chance to upload the video.

Robin and the producers wanted to do a different type of show this year about ghosts (since it was the Halloween season). She obviously does not believe in ghosts but is a gracious host and fantastic person!

You can watch the interview on YouTube at the link I provided below:

I’ll also be showing ghost pictures and sharing ghost EVP recorded with the ghost box. The ghost talk will be about my book, Helping Ghosts: A Guide to Understanding Lost Spirits and how we can communicate with ghosts in order to help them move forward on their journey. Ghosts are people aren’t they?
