Yvette

I am a Field Investigator and Historic Researcher for the investigation team.  I enjoys researching family history, folklore, and the fascinating history of Richmond Virginia, which inevitably led into the learning about the paranormal history of the city.  I was thrown into ghost hunting by tagging along on an exploration of a historic home that is known to be haunted.  Not knowing that I would be asked to talk to ghost that night, my casual paranormal interest turn into wanting to know more about contacting and identifying the lingering spirits. Going on  road trips and vacationing with a good horror mystery book are a few of the things I enjoy doing in my free time.

Yvonne

        I am a Field Investigator for the team. I lived in a haunted house for several years when I was growing up. It was near the library so every weekend I’d ride my bike to the library and spend hours in section 133 reading about hauntings, tarot, astrology, etc. I grew up in Utah and was blessed with parents that loved road trips so we’ve been to many of the haunted sites in CA. Such as the Winchester Mansion and even staying overnight on the Queen Mary. Since then I’ve been hooked. Investigative Strengths: Audio Sessions for EVP, Dowsing

        Since I was young I have been fascinated by ghost stories and unexplained phenomena. Whenever I visit a new area or the places I’ve lived, I’ve always searched for the haunted tours while I’m there. I’m also fascinated by history. Both the big stories (revolutionary and civil wars) and the smaller, more personal stories.

Quite a few times in my life I have had my own encounters with the paranormal. I also read a lot about different religions, energy and its intention. I strongly believe in past lives.

__________________________________________________________________________   INVESTIGATORS ON SABATICLE Amy I am a Field Investigator and Researcher for the team.  I have a keen interest in understanding the folkloric and cultural connection with the paranormal, which has developed since childhood from Virginia’s rich history.  As a Virginia native, I am particularly interested in the lore of Richmond and the oral tradition of Appalachia which has led me to transcribe the stories I grew up with.  I am also passionate about the paranormal on an international level.  Having lived in seven countries and visited over fifty-three, I have had the opportunity to investigate, from a paranormal standpoint, castles in Bohemia, a gulag in Hungary, and a former Secret Police station in Serbia.  I have also enjoyed researching the folklore surrounding the Golem in the Czech Republic, Vlad Tepes (Dracula) in Romania and topics such as shamanism in Indonesia and parts of Central America.  When I am not investigating, or navigating an exotic location, I enjoy taking local road trips, dining out, and visiting the historical and cultural attractions of Virginia. Investigative Strengths:  Folklore, Foreign Language, Research, and Dowsing Christy   I am a Field Investigator for the team.
