It is normal to want to know more after you have had an encounter of one type or another.  Humans are curious creatures.  Once something spurs our imagination we just need more answers.  It seems as hard as we try the “curiosity” seems to nag at us.  Looking in other places that are reported to be haunted or trying to find others that have had the same or similar experiences are the most common responses. 


Lets face it, it is a bit unnerving to see a “person” that isn’t really a person.  Or to hear your name whispered in your ear and there is “no one” where someone supposedly had just been.  I have a little experience with this.  When shadows are seen just out of the corner of your eye, you wonder “Is it just my eyes playing tricks on me or is there something really there?”


There are many ways you can find at least partial answers.  There are books and online site which offer advice.  I myself have not tried the on-line sites, so I can not give a first hand review.  I would however advise you to do your research.  Check to see what they offer.  Not all internet sites are there to help you.  Many are there to just “make a buck”. 


If you have had your own experience or are just curious in nature, you might try the following:


“Historic Haunted America” by Michael Norman & Beth Scott

     Heralded in newspapers and magazines everywhere, including the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, The Florida Living Magazine, The Denver Post, and The Baltimore Sun, Haunted America has attracted enormous attention all over the country. 

     Continuing with the success of the nationally acclaimed Haunted America and Haunted Heartland, Historic Haunted America is a further investigation into North American ghost legends, a comprehensive compendium documenting yesterday and today’s most shocking hauntings in the United States and Canada….scores of shocking stories.

     From the ghost-ridden forts in Old Tucson to the “Inn of the 17 Ghosts” near Philadelphia, from the haunted plantations of Louisiana and Georgia to a haunted community playhouse in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Michael Norman and Beth Scott tell stories of the past and present so terrifyingly real that even the most skeptical reader will believe.


“A Ghosthunter’s Guide” by Arthur Myers

     Veteran ghost investigator Arthur Myers takes you on a coat-to-coast tour of the most haunted public places in North America in the collection of nerve-tingling tales featuring poltergeist of all shapes and sizes.  Restaurants, parks, hotels, offices, and museums are just some of the twenty-four favorite haunts of the restless souls, described in A Ghosthunter’s Guide.  You’ll be spirited off to places such as:

*The Gorman School in Forman, California, where the little specter Harriet adds her own ornament to a classroom’s Christmas tree.

*The Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone, Arizona, where a gentleman ghost leaves his handcrafted cigarette lighters.

*The Catfish Plantation Restaurant in Waxahachie, Texas, where a hospitable ghost makes coffee.

*The Johnson County Industrial Airport in Olathe, Kansas, where the ghost of a young Navy pilot prowls the hangar where his plane crashed.

*Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave, where Melissa, the lovelorn Southern belle, searches hopelessly for the man she led into the cave and abandoned.


If you have had your own experience, share with us.  We are curious too!
