Do you feel that something unusual is happening to you in your home or business and wonder if it might be a haunting?
Are you having trouble sleeping or getting some one to believe what is going on in your life? Could it be paranormal?
We want to help YOU. It's not about "US" or our "agenda"!
Our goal is to collect historical facts that might be proven through research and therefore add credibility to the belief in continued consciousness after death. This is done with non evasive equipment, such as Electromagnetic Field Monitors, Infra Red Thermometers, digital recordings both audio and video, digital and film media, and through psychic/mediumistic impressions that are recorded and researched against historical records for validity.

If this is the case we will offer you that information as quickly as possible and put you in touch with another who can be of service to you.
In the past few months we have referred people to reputable groups closer to them than we are. This was not to phappy the buck but to offer the best customer service possible. If you are working with a group, team or individual who takes 4 or 6 hours to get to your location they are not going to be convenient to you. We would rather refer you to people we trust who would be more local to you than "hog" the field to ourselves and put your best interests second to our own.
We promise you a referral to a qualified if for any reason we feel that they would better benefit you or your situation. It isn't about *US*.
The Preleminary Interview/Investigation
Preliminary investigation consists of an interview with witnesses of your situation at your convenience, a tour of the property and a small collection of data gained by non obtrusive methods (listed above) usually a two hour block.
This is a FREE SERVICE, as all of our services are.
Our investigations (once more FREE OF CHARGE) are handled under STRICT codes of conduct and conducted under stringent controls that help us remove the human error factor from our data collection. We create a time line that can reconstruct every investigators whereabouts at any given time during an investigation making it possible to determine if a "shadow" picture or audio recording might be attributed to a normal source as opposed to a paranormal source.
Investigations consist of one to two hour blocks of data collection taken over a course of time that is most convenient to the client. They do not have to be all at one time or even during the dark of night. Your convenience and comfort will dictate how long, how frequently or how briefly we will conduct the time block data collections.
Follow up may consist of many things from our detailing our findings and showing you or evidence to returning for ongoing investigations or instructing you on how to continue the ongoing investigations on your own. This is a customized FREE SERVICE that varies from case to case, as merited by your situation.
G2G group treats every situation as a unique experience. We do not bring preconceived ideas in to your circumstances and try to hammer your private dilemma into a cookie cutter, formulaic horror story for our own gain. Complete privacy is our promise.
Many investigations are PRIVATE and to us that means more than refusing to show you any proof of what happened on them while regaling you with stories of the AWESOME evidence we could show you if ONLY it weren't private. No. Private means just that.

I started elementary school in 1966 at Westwood Terrace in San Antonio, Texas. While I was there, I heard many local legends. Later I found that anyone who had gone to school in San Antonio had heard of the Donkey Lady.
Now the way I heard it, back in the fifties, a young woman had been in a fire. (My wife says she heard the Donkey Lady had lost two children in that fire and that her husband had started it). She was left horribly disfigured.
It was said that when her face healed, all the skin had something of a drooped, baggy appearance. Her fingers had all fused together, leaving dark stumps, or hooves. Disfigured and totally insane, she stayed mostly in the rural areas of Bexar (pronounced "bear") County and terrorized anyone who approached her. As children, when we could stay out late on summer nights, we would all describe what we thought she looked like. We were absolutely positive she waited in the darkness for us to separate so she could pounce on a lone victim, ripping and chewing... well you get the idea.
Most of the Donkey Lady stories have faded into memory, but one was a little harder to shake. One of best my friends told of a cousin who was with his father and brother on a weekend outing. They were going to camp and do a little fishing in an unofficial county park. The group pulled up to a weed infested area off a dirt road and began to make camp. The two boys had the task of unloading the pickup truck while the father found a suitable spot for the tent. While unloading the truck one of the boys heard a rustling in the weeds just ahead of the truck. He told his brother, who in turn called out to their father to come to the truck. The three of them watched the tall weeds beneath the oaks away from the road bend under the weight of what was apparently a large animal. Then they heard an odd snorting sound and a high-pitched snarl. The father, not recognizing the sounds coming from the "animal," decided they probably ought to find another spot to set up camp.
The three of them quickly threw the tent, sleeping bags, and gear into the back of their truck. While packing up, the father watched out of the corner of his eye, as the weeds shook nearby. The prowler moved away from the trees and began heading for the general area of the road. The father urgently whispered for the boys to get in the truck-- fast! All three of them were in the truck in a flash and the father started it up. He put the truck in gear and was just pulling out in the road when something fast and large burst out of the weeds and ran at the front of the truck. Seconds later, a horrible apparition bounded up onto their hood and began shrieking at them through the glhappy. It was the ugliest thing any of them ever saw. They swore it looked like a donkey, but it was mostly human. It screamed at them more as the truck continued to move away from the weeds and into the road. It used its deformed hands to punch at the windshield and broke it in many places.
The father hit the brakes. The thing slid off the hood and onto the dirt road. Throwing the truck into reverse, the father floored the gas pedal and put some distance between them and the thing backing into the weeds off the road. He then put the truck into first and stepped on it again. That thing was coming up on them fast. They said it almost looked like a wild animal with an incredible look of rage and hatred in its eyes. Dirt sprayed up from the road at the beast as they pulled out, slowing it down just enough for them to get away.
The Donkey Lady supposedly had finally dropped back and headed into the weeds. After the story was told, and my friend let it be known that he thought it was a nice story but, well, it was a nice story. Then he was taken outside and shown the truck. The windshield was almost knocked out. The hood was dented and its paint was scuffed and scraped.
Forest Park Cemetery was listed by Life magazine as one of the Top Ten most haunted places in the United States.
Forest Park Cemetery is located in the town of Brunswick, New York. It has long been a place of desolation and abandonment although current attempts are being made to raise money to restore this historical site. Much of the documentation has been lost for this cemetery including the architectural plans for the only remaining, standing structure, the receiving tomb.
Forest Park Cemetery was first incorporated by a group of wealthy Troy citizens in 1897. The area chosen occupied 200 acres of gently rolling hills, several natural streams and a small pre-existing graveyard. This acreage spanned all the way from Brunswick Road to its current location on Pinewood Avenue (this location has led to the misnomer of calling it Pinewood Cemetery). The first thing the incorporation did was to install drainage pipes to the spring and wet areas, some of which are broken or plugged today. The original goal of these citizens was to create a cemetery and park the likes of which would rival Troy's historic Oakwood. A beautiful landscape has been done of the proposed layout and can be found in the Brunswick Historical Society in Eagle Mills. Unfortunately these aspirations were not to be fulfilled. The incorporation spent large amounts of money on the drainage systems, photographs, a few of the formal gardens, the beautiful receiving tomb which today lies in ruin, and the architect who planed the site. The original layout for the landscaping was designed by Garnet Baltimore, the first black graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I.).
In 1914 the original incorporation went bankrupt. However, it was re-incorporated by investors from New York City and Chicago under the name Forest Hills in 1918. This incorporation soon also went bankrupt in the 1930's. Despite the re-incorporation, little of the original plan was ever carried out, the receiving tomb, designed by a still existing (at least it was 5 years ago) company called Temple Brother located in Vermont, was built and some graves were sold but none of the fountains or pools were ever built. The cemetery now only occupies 22 acres, although one can scarcely see the boundaries through the weeds. The central focus point of the cemetery was to be the receiving tomb which was onstructed and still stands, although much of it has been destroyed. The glhappy dome is gone and the roof removed, as well as the marble wall coverings. Graffiti covers the walls and although some attempts have been made to clean it up a bit, it was not done by professionals. As a result, much of this historic monument has been ravaged.
Despite its current condition however, the tomb still has a commanding presence. The design is an architectural cross between the designs of Romanesque, Clhappyicist, and Sullivanism, the structure has an emphasis on mhappy and proportion not specific details. As is typical of the Romanesque style, there is a focus on the rough, monochromatic masonry that stresses the edges with quoins of smooth masonry. Also typical of this architecture are the mhappyive arches of the entry way and "fake" windows which draw your attention upward. The clhappyicist influence can be seen in the bilateral symmetry and the triangular pediment on the porte cochere and also within the glhappy dome although it no longer exists. The sparse detailing found on the masonry frieze is typical of Sullivan in the organic nature of its leaf and flower pattern. The styles are consistent with the time period of 1897, a time when Romanesque was loosing the battle of fashion against clhappyicist influence.
The design of this tomb was meant to portray a sense of permanence, order, and eternal control. It was hoped that this would happyure people that it would last forever. Sadly, this faith was unfounded. The grounds are overgrown, vandalized, and forgotten. A vivid reminder of how societies views toward death have changed. Instead of revering death we now consider it an inconvenience, sticking burial places far from the people. No longer are cemeteries designed to be beautiful places to go and honor those who came before, but around the lawn mover and the weed-whacker. Many places do not even allow the planting of flowers but instead leave places for plastic stems and fiber petals to sit and soil with time.
Most local residents don't know many details about the cemetery, or prefer to remain silent when asked about them, but there may be some truth to the rumors if Life magazine felt strongly enough to list old Forest Park as one of the Top Ten most haunted places in the United States. No actual ghost sightings have occured there (or have they?), although stories of bleeding statues and crying babies are well known.
An interesting story sighted in the Troy Record (Oct.27,1996, pp.E1,4) tells of a couple who "parked" in the cemetery in the 1940's or 50's. The man got out of the car to investigate a strange noise, and a little while later the woman heard scraping on the roof of the car. Police arrived at the scene and told the girl to get out of the car and run, and not to look back. Of course she did, only to see that the scraping sound was coming from her companion's feet scraping against the roof of the car. He had been dangling from a tree above.
Another story (although it's one that has been told in many towns), is that of the vanishing hitchhiker. According to the same Troy Record article, a Troy taxi cab driver told this story to Avril Park historian Judy Rowe. It is the tale of a young girl dressed in party clothes whom he picked up at Emma Willard School one night. She needed a ride home and directed the cabbie up Pinewoods Avenue, but upon reaching Forest Park Cemetery, the young girl vanished.
Jane Maria Clouson is a heartbreaking reminder that with every grave, there’s a story. Her gravestone is in the Brockley and Lady Cemetery, where she was conveyed by horse-drawn carriage and carried by women dressed as maids. The trial that surrounded her murder had London in an uproar. The story was reported as a clear case of clhappy discrimination.
On April 25, 1871, police found 17-year-old Jane Maria Clouson on Kidbrooke Lane, covered in blood. She died a few days later in Guy’s Hospital. Her story then started to unfold. Until shortly before her attack, she had been employed as a maid in the household of Ebenezer Pook and his family. Even though most people described her as polite and respectable, she had been dismissed from the family’s service only about a week and a half before she was beaten so badly that the policeman who found her reported that her brain had been visible through the blood. (It wasn’t, but that was his first impression.)
Upon her death, claims circulated that she had been in a relationship with Pook’s son, Edmund. Edmund denied it, claiming that she was “dirty.” She had obviously been in a relationship with someone, though, as she was two months pregnant when she died.
A nearby gardener discovered the murder weapon—a hammer—and a local hardware store testified that Edmund had purchased it not long before the murder. He had blood on his shirt, and his arms were scratched. Edmund was initially found guilty, but he was deemed innocent on appeal for a lack of evidence.
London was outraged. The police were accused of not pursuing other avenues of inquiry. The public largely believed that the family’s connections had spoken more loudly than justice for the maid. In the fallout after the trial, the Pooks attempted to sue people for slander. This offense was so widespread, though, that they left London instead.
In 1873, a newspaper in Australia reported that a young man had been detained there for the murder, but authorities didn’t end up holding him. Scotland Yard didn’t think he was involved.
South Africa has plenty of active spirits. The Cape Town Castle ghost has been appearing for over 300 years. The tall luminous figure is most often seen walking along the battlement of the castle, built in 1665. The ghost of one of the men who died building the underground tunnel which runs from the Post Office to Main Railway Station in Johannesburg haunts the dark phappyageway to this day. Spokeveld ("Spook Country") is along the southern edge of the Great Karoo between the Patatas River and the Southkloff. The entire region is haunted by spectral wagons, phantom horse riders, and ghostly wanderers. In a more modern setting, Port Elizabeth Highway (between the Hex River Mountains and Drakensberg) is haunted by a phantom automobile that is blamed for causing more than one accident.
Singapore is Asia's most haunted city. Strange lights flit through Hougang School, near East Coast Beach, and people are slapped by an unseen presence at the Changi Beach Houses. Ghosts appear from nowhere and beg for food along the coast near Lor Halus, and St. John Island is haunted by a ghost that calls for help and then runs away. The Hou Gang Tenements are haunted by the apparition of a screaming lady, and a person was reportedly killed by a ghost in Bedok Tenant House.

In India, Brahmadaitya is ghost of an unmarried Brahmin monk who takes up residence in a tree after death, but the bitchy boogey will break people's necks if they tresphappy his property. Pretas are the rooming ghosts of Hindu men who died by violence and whose corpses were disposed of "unceremoniously." Mumiai is a Indian poltergeist that invades homes throughout Bombay, while Virikas are small spirits that appear surrounded by a reddish mist and make guttural sounds. Paisachi and Bauta are male and female ghosts who haunt so many homes that they have been given nicknames.
Australia is a very haunted continent! Important cases from New South Wales are the Old Government House in Parramatta, the Quarrantine Station in North Head, and the Rookwood Cemetery. Cases from Victoria include the ghost of Frederick Baker, who died of a heartattack while playing Mephistopheles in "Faust" at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne, the spirits of the Old Melbourne Gaol (Jail), and the Block Arcade, which is haunted by three firemen who lost their lives trying to put out a fire that erupted in a grain storage warehouse that used to stand on the spot. Another haunted spot in Melbourne is the Victoria Market, which is built right on top of Melbourne's first cemetery. Reports of ghostly encounters at the market go back to the 1840s and continue to this day. Brisbane in Queensland is the most haunted city in Australia and locations covered from that city will include the Old Government House, the Parliament House, and the Brisbane Arcade, and City Hall, where at least three ghosts haunt the hallways. One is an elegant woman, another a maintenance man who continually rides the elevator that killed him in a freak accident, and the last is an American sailor stabbed to death in a fight with another sailor in the downstairs tearoom. Brisbane cemeteries are also hotspots of paranormal activity.
Lutwyche Cemetery ghosts are presaged by the "smell of death;" singing white lights haunt Toowong Cemetery; and apparitions dart across the roads in Bridgeman Downs Cemetery. However, Australia's best documented ghost is known simply as the Ghost of the Outback. It has been seen scores of times in a clearing near Corroboree Springs, which is about 100 miles from Alice Springs. The short dark-featured spirit is thought to be a member of the Arunta Aboriginal Tribe, which used the site for secret and occasionally fatal intitiations.
Cases from Tasmania include the Theatre Royal ghost in Hobart and the floating apparitions of Royal Hobart Hospital. West Australia Fremantle Museum has three ghosts of former prison inmates who erected the building under forced labor. Every resident of the town of Stawell has reported seeing the 8-foot-tall phantom of a man who stays near one particular house in town. A stone building known as the Garth on the bank of the South Esk River just outside Fingal in Tasmania is haunted by the angry ghost of a settler who hanged himself when the bride he sent for from England jilted him.
There are hundreds of hauntings on record in Canada. One recent example is the Firkins' House in Heritage Park in Fort Edmonton, Alberta, which haunted by the presence of a friendly young man, the son of one of the early owners. Another benevolent presence haunts the Vogue Theatre Vancouver, British Columbia. Less friendly is the ghost of an Indian Chief seen on the Sarcee Reservation or the apparitions of two men who appear in the Banff Springs Hotel. Both sites are near Calgary.
Central and South America
Buses traveling in the area of former U.S. Army facility Fort Clayton in Panama City report the sudden appearance of an extremely ill American soldier lying on the back seat of the bus. The pale man asks to be dropped off at the clinic and then disappears. The Azeman is a ghostly woman who haunts the villages of Surinam (Dutch Guiana) in northeastern South America. The unwelcome phantom bites a piece of flesh from the big toe of sleeping persons and saps their blood.
The City Cemetery in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, is haunted by ghastly apparitions of decomposing bodies. In recent years, the cemetery has been plundered by grave robbers who sell casket handles, shoes, and anything else they can salvage from the tombs. Bakas ghostly ghoul are members of a secret society in Haiti who agree to return from the grave. The Chase Mauseleum in Christ Church Graveyard in Barbados, West Indies, is famous in ghostly lore. The coffins of family members buried in the early 1800s move around in the locked vault, sometimes lining up vertically along the walls. At one time, the Governor of Barbados personally sealed the vault but nine months later the coffins were all rearranged, even though all the seals had not been tampered with. Finally, the government reburied the coffins in separate places and that seemed to have stopped the phenomenon. The empty Chase vault lies open now for all to see.
In Iceland, there was a law on the statute books for many years that enabled people to legally summons a ghost that had been tormenting them to court and have it bound over to authorities. In Finland, the fiery spirit of the child ghost Liekkio haunts many homes, while in Hjalta Stad, Sweden, the semi-naked figure of a bald old man who was ostracized by the community causes panic throughout the city. A ghost of King Valdemar IV, the "psychic king," appears in Gurre Wood near Helsingor, Denmark. Another Danish monarch, King Abel, appears at Poole near the city of Slewig whenever some crucial event is about to happen.
Lorelei is the famous singing ghost that sits on a tall rock on the right bank of the Rhine in Hesse-Nhappyau, but the White Lady of Hohenzollerns is much more mobile. She has appeared in castles all over Germany, including Neuhaus, Berlin, Bechin, Tretzen, and Raumleau. The White Lady is thought to be Princess Perchta von Rosenberg, who haunts the descendents of her cruel husband. Another well-heeled female ghost appears to descendents of Count Johannes Rathenau, an Austrian noble who slaughtered the defenders of Schloss Altebar in Bavaria during the Middle Ages. To this day, the Baroness Russlein von Altebar seeks her revenge, first appearing as a beautiful courtesan then turning into a rotting corpse. In Vienna, she boarded the cab of Walther Rathenau, who died of fright. Major Helmut Rathenau met her in a casino in Badden Baden and died of a heart attack. In Munich, Carl Heinz Rathenau was "turned into a mummy" after meeting the comely ghost on the street.
At Euro Disney in France, a mysterious vortex of energy haunts the small children's section. Brittany, on the northwest tip of France, is haunted by Ankou, a ghostly grim reaper, and in the Monts d'Aree (Black Mountains), the French government built a nuclear reactor right on the spot locals call the Gates of Hell because of all the ghost sightings. Most of the sightings are of a demon dog and a little girl sacrificed by devil worshippers at the site.

A more friendly ghostly presence haunts a gay bar in Geneva, Switzerland.
Household ghosts are so common in Russia that they have developed distinct clhappyifications for them. Domovoi are domestic ghosts that tend to be nuisances or poltergeists but help out with chores if treated with respect. Domovikha are more quiet household spirits whose presence you can sense in certain rooms. The roads of eastern Russia is haunted by the ghost of Zorya Vechernaya, who can usually be seen at dusk driving a white chariot.

Vaso Miskin Street and the adjoining marketplace in Sarajevo, Bosnia, is haunted by the ghosts of innocent people slaughtered there, and the streets of Bijeljina are haunted by Mehmed, a Muslin killed by a Serbian strike force.
Great Britain & Ireland
Examples of British ghosts include the ghost of a man dressed in Regency-style clothes who appears in several rooms at 10 Downing Street, the fourteen ghosts that haunt the Sanford Orcas Manor near Sherborne in Dorset, England's most haunted house (Borley Rectory), and England's most haunted city (Derby), where nearly every building has a ghost story to go with it. Well-documented poltergeist cases will also be featured. They include the so-called Drummer of Tidworth case, in which drumming and banging sounds accompanied levitations and flying objects in the home of John Mompesson in Wiltshire, and the Enfield Poltergeist that appeared in the Harper family home in Middlesex and was responsible for coins falling from midair, teapots floating, furniture moving, and people being tossed out of chairs and beds.
The rest of Great Britain also has plenty of ghosts to report on. The "bean-nighe" is an ugly Scottish banshee that shows up to wash the clothes of those who are about to die. Another ghost of the highlands is Bodach, a shriveled old man who enters and leaves homes through chimneys.
The Irish spirit Ad'h Seidh can change into a beautiful woman or lowly farm animal depending on what area around Dublin she haunts. Phouka is the Irish term for ghosts that appear as horses or goats to trick people.
