Before we became the Dorset Ghost Investigators.. Our first ghost hunt on video.

This is where it all began for the Dorset Ghost Investigators before going public on Youtube. This footage was caught on tape over 9 years ago. We’ve been ghost hunting for over 12 years now and we still enjoy our ghost investigations just as much as we first started. Our aim was just to share ghost hunting footage before ghost hunting really got popular, and we never expected to have such a large following. Thank You to everyone that has followed us.

What is a ghost?

In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.
The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.

Haunted History: Halloween the Perfect time to Explore the Haunted Haunts in Yosemite Valley


Oakhurst, CA. (Vocus) September 15, 2009 –

Each year millions of people flow through California’s Gateway to Yosemite to explore the scenic American icon, as well as the numerous attractions throughout Madera County. A smaller group of visitors come for something very specific: the haunted attractions of the region.

“The Madera County region is steeped in rich history as settlers first started making their way during the gold rush of 1849,” said Dan Cunning, CEO of the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau (http://www.yosemitethisyear.com) which promotes the region. “The result is numerous sites of historical significance, and many that are considered by paranormal researchers to be haunted.”

Fresno Flats Historic Village and Park recaptures the flavor of 19th Century life in the Sierra Nevada foothills and mountains of Central California. According to researchers with the Central Valley Seekers, the first group to actually investigate the reports of ghost activity at Fresno Flats, some of the structures are also home to spirits still attached to the historic buildings.

“When we first started investigating we didn’t get too much evidence because of the type of spirits. It’s family oriented and we got the feeling they thought we were invading their space. When they got familiar with us, with Laura (Huddleson, facility caretaker) telling them we were there to get to know them, they started communicating with us,” said Peggy Armer. She said the spirits now have really started opening up, and as a result they have captured numerous EVPs or electronic voice phenomenon.

Huddleson echoed Armer’s statements that the spirits are family oriented and friendly, as she said guests are left with a positive feeling. “We’ve talked to several people here that say based off of EVPs and other equipment that it’s a happy, contented place. You don’t get weird feelings, nothing mean or angry. Just happy, positive spirits.”

Armer’s group works with the historical society to take people interested in learning more about the history and the spirits on tours during the normally closed evening hours. To book a tour or to learn more, contact Armer at (559) 779-9400. More information on the Fresno Flats Historical Society can be found at http://www.fresnoflatsmuseum.org.

One popular attraction in Oakhurst is the Golden Chain Theater Known for its production of melodramas for the past 42 years. Theater owner Mary Lou Finley says in addition to the memorable stage experiences guests come away with, many others take home stories of other, more supernatural, experiences.

“We have a large huge cast of people who were in shows for 42 years who on occasion want to visit. The way in which they visit is both exciting and positive,” said Finley. She went on to say that many of the experiences are ones normally associated with spirits. “Cold spots, lights turning off or on,” she said.

Finley said while some people have been there for years and never had anything out of the ordinary happen to them, others have some great tales. “I personally have had strange things that I can’t explain that are exciting.”

Another popular stop with deep rooted history is the Sierra Sky Ranch Resort. Built in 1875, the resort was once the largest cattle ranch in California, a tuberculosis hospital for children in the early 1900’s and a military hospital during World War II. This diverse history has made it an active location for paranormal activity.

“We’ve made believers out of a lot of nonbelievers,” said Ted Roache, the general manager of the property.

“The most common story we get is guests saying they hear kids running up and down the upstairs hallway all night long, and we’re a single story building, plus we have no kids on property at the time,” said Roache.

Roache said another common tale is of people saying they felt a push while in bed as if their spouse were nudging them over despite being alone.

The kitchen is also another center of activity. “There are stories of two chefs at the property who weren’t friends in life. Apparently that dislike has carried over into the afterlife, as people would experience things like items in the kitchen moving or being thrown, or things falling from the shelf that shouldn’t have,” Roache said.

While unnerving, Roache said the happenings have never proven too much for someone. “We’ve never had someone leave scared. They just leave with some good stories,” he said.

The Sierra Sky Ranch Resort is located just north of Oakhurst. For more information on the property, log on to http://www.sierraskyranch.com.

The region has hosted numerous celebrity ghost hunters, as crews from TAPS (That Atlantic Paranormal Society) and A&E’s Paranormal Kids and more. Armer said true ghost hunting is not just the search of answers about life after death, but a lot of research into the history of a region. “The reason we started because of the historical value to it. We get a lot of information that we get to research. That’s why I got in to it, I get to learn a lot of history.”

Armer said with each trip, they come away with a little more understanding. “Each time we go we get a little more evidence,” she said.

Do You Hear Voices in the White Noise?

(PRWEB) January 5, 2005

The new Michael Keaton movie White Noise opens on Jan 7 and is sure to scare audiences with its spooky theme centering around voices of the dead caught on tape and weird ghostly images appearing on TV screens. But, as audiences leave the theater, many will be wondering if this is a real phenomenon or just a Hollywood creation. The surprising fact is that people have been capturing these strange voices since the early 1950s, yet very little is known about where they actually come from.

EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomenon is a way some say you can communicate with the dead using average household electronic devices like portable tape players and digital voice recorders, your video camera and even a coffee pot or your computer. Some say you need white noise such as a fan or running water to record properly and give the ‘spirits’ something to create their voices from, but many claim all you have to do is tape yourself asking questions of the dear departed and when you play it back you might just hear them respond.

Supporters like Tom and Lisa Butler of the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomenon, or AAEVP, say that just about any recording device will do and they have thousands of samples taken by people of all walks of life from around the world. Skeptics claim it is all simply intercepted radio transmissions or active imaginations. While radio transmission is a prime suspect in this world of over crowded airwaves, there has been scientific research conducted to explore this possibility with some startling results.

In 1971, engineers at Britain’s Pye Records decided to set up an experiment with the famous European psychologist and EVP researcher Dr. Konstantin Raudive at their special studio that blocked out all radio and television transmissions. The conditions for the experiment were quite strict and Dr. Raudive was not allowed to touch any of the equipment or make any modifications whatsoever. The good Dr. was allowed only to speak into a microphone during the 18 minutes of recording. Everyone present agreed they had heard no voices or any unexplainable sounds at all during the experiment, yet when they played the tape back, over 200 voices could be heard.

Also in 1970 another British researcher, David Ellis who researched EVP as his degree project at Cambridge University wondered about the possibility of radio interference. Setting up an experiment in a radio wave blocking room made of copper sheets called the Faraday cage, Ellis sought to prove once and for all if radio waves could cause EVP. Researchers at the University agreed; if he didn’t capture a voice it would prove radio waves had been the culprit all along. To everyone’s surprise, Ellis captured a definite voice. Since the Faraday cage does not block sound waves, a stray voice from outside was blamed and further study was canceled. EVP enthusiasts still ask why there was not another experiment to confirm these unexplainable results at such a prestigious university.

In 1982 Scottish researcher Alexander MacRae, a college lecturer in microelectronics and NASA voice recognition researcher, heard strange growls and groans as he worked on his biometric invention, the Alpha. MacRae used a tape recorder to take his notes and was surprised to hear voices, including that of his father when he played them back. After years of research and thousands of collected samples using the Alpha, MacRae concluded “All the utterances are short; and each one begins at its beginning and ends at its end; each utterance is complete. Now that cannot be random. I have worked out that the odds against all the phrases being short and the right length happening by chance are of the order of a trillion to one.”

Sound engineers and scientists in a specially designed studio, a noted psychologist, researchers at Cambridge and a NASA voice expert all concluded radio waves were not the cause of EVP. So what could it be? Are these really spirits of the dead contacting us through some inter-dimensional phone system?

Dr. Robert Carroll, noted skeptic and author of the “Skeptics Dictionary” and SkepDic.com, says no; it’s all in our heads. The human brain is simply making sense out of the chaos of noise and people hear what they want to hear. He quotes psychologist Jim Alcock: “Perception is a very complex process, and when our brains try to find patterns, they are guided in part by what we expect to hear; The brain puts together the visual cue and the auditory input, and we actually “hear” what we are informed is being said, even though without that information, we could discern nothing.”

EVP researchers say that while this does often happen, real EVP is much different and most people can agree with what is being said by many voices they tape. Popular Internet blogger Regmanabq, in his blog EVP – the Electronic Voice Phenomenon(http://evprecording.blogspot.com), reports that this may not be the case with at least one famous EVP sample currently featured in White Noise movie trailers and TV commercials.

“It seems the now famous recording of deceased Ruth Baxter supposedly taken in 2003 saying “I shall see you no more” was actually taken many years ago by EVP guru and founder of the AAEVP Sarah Estep in a lighthouse used as a civil war hospital and prisoner of war camp. For years EVP enthusiasts agreed this recording said, “I was seeing the war”, yet Hollywood now has everyone convinced differently.“

Is it the giant letters on the screen telling us what is being said that makes us hear these voices? Could it be radio or TV interference or even cell phone conversations that are mysteriously recorded somehow? Or can you really talk with the dead over your voice recorder or television? The simple truth is that no one has any proof, not the skeptics or the believers. It could be ghosts, it could be radio transmissions or it could just be in your head. What do you hear in the white noise?

electronic voice phenomenon (EVP)

electronic voice phenomenon (EVP)

Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.–Paul Simon, “The Boxer”

Satan “can remain hidden, or speak in different languages, transform himself or appear to be agreeable.” –Gabriele Amorth, 85, who has been the Vatican’s chief exorcist for 25 years

Electronic voice phenomenon is the alleged communication by spirits through tape recorders and other electronic devices. The belief in EVP in the United States seems to have mushroomed thanks to Sarah Estep, president of the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena, which claims to have members in some 40 states and publishes a newsletter. Estep claims that in the 1970s she started picking up voices on her husband’s Teac reel-to-reel recorder. She is sure that the voices are spirits, proving there is life after death. Estep also claims to hear voices of aliens on some of her tapes. She says she has taped some 20,000 ghosts and aliens. Aliens don’t speak English, however, so she is not sure what they are saying. Maybe she was picking up Satan speaking in tongues.
