2014 so far

2014 has been pretty busy for us already. 3 investigations, 2 homeowners and 1 business, and a presentation with the Screen Free organization. We would like to share some pictures of the presentation we did at the Becker County History Museum. It was a fun presentation on local legends and lore. With some equipment basics followed by some EVP's we have gotten.

We go back to the museum we investigated in December '13. Quite a bit of activity the last time. We hope we will be able to share the evidence from both afterwards.

Bottineau Courant Article by Scott Wagar

Here is an article from the Bottineau Courant by Scott Wagar. It features our investigation of San Haven. He wrote a seven piece article on the history of San Haven which won some awards. One picture is captioned wrong. The shadow figure it says we debunked is talking about a different picture. There was some confusion with that discussion. To read it click on the attatched PDF files.
