Preston Galera - Hawaiian Island Ghost Hunters
To date, as Hawaiian Island Ghost Hunters, we have conducted ten (10) investigations. We've been able to debunk many claims, but we've also been left with a lot of unexplainable phenomena. We've been actively searching for a credible source to send our findings to so we can help to build up a database of research findings. We are very meticulous in our investigations and reviews and only present evidence that is truly "unexplainable." Our main goal during our investigations is to find logical explanations to our client's claims. By doing so, we can provide more credibility to our findings that are unexplainable or paranormal in nature. Though we have so much personal experiences that drove us to find answers, we go into each investigation with a neutral point of view.

Kansas City,Missouri - Becky Ray -
American Ghost Society Area Representative & Paranormal Activity Investigators
Opinion -
I have been actively studying the paranormal for over 20 years. I am also a member of the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena and the Rhine Research Center. I like to think of myself as a skeptic, in that I have an open mind. I do not go into an investigation with any preset ideas of what I may or may not find. Of course I'd love to be able to authenticate all rumored hauntings and ghost lore, but that just isn't realistic. At the same time, just because I did not witness or have any findings of paranormal activity in a location, I accept that others may have experienced something.

South Wisconsin - Amy Tomlin - Voices Through The Static
As a child, Amy would search for any books at her local and school libraries that pertained to the paranormal, hoping to find anything that would captivate her. She looked forward to Saturdays - for Leonard Nimoy's 'In Search Of', one of the first television series dedicated to the supernatural. Amy admits that the show was quite frightening for a young child but that as she grew older, that fright turned to fascination and she became even more drawn to the unknown - she wanted to learn the truth behind the tales.
She remembers being curious about analog recorders at a very early age - possibly sparking the interest she grew to have in EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena). She began studying this aspect of the paranormal in 1992 and became a certified EVP analyst in 2008.
She eventually became the founding member of Voices Through the Static EVP Research and Kindred Spirits Paranormal, as well as the so. Wisconsin representative for the American Association of Paranormal Research.

North Wisconsin - Athena Markley
- Spirit Lake Paranormal Investigation Group
Each member of our group has had an experience with paranormal activities. Personally, I have had several U.F.O. sightings and many ghost sightings including: A ghost I saw with my sister and an unexplainable experience, where I had seen a disturbing "vision" or "dream". The next day (before I had told anyone) my brother said he saw the same "vision".  We believe that the truth and knowledge will take to the purpose of humans, gods, spirits, demons, ect. Also to understand the correlation of everything on earth and all that surrounds the earth.
