API Gals @ Through the Veil
Visit the API Gals at Through the Veil, June 5-7, in Atlanta, Georgia.
The API Gals are excited to see Tim Woolworth. Here is what TTV posted:
Paranormal friends, what do you think about real time, 2-way voice communication with the deceased? Is it possible? Is it already happening? The history of communication attempts is fascinating! (Google The Scole Experiment, World ITC .org, Kaunstantine Raudive…) Approximately 10 years ago a man named Frank Sumption designed something he called the Frank’s Box which worked with radio and random …volt generators. The idea being that Spirit can manipulate radio speech fragments to communicate with us. Since then, many variations exist but the overall design is similar. Researchers like Tim Woolworth have devoted a great amount of time to experimenting with devices like this. Tim will be with us at the 7th Annual Through The Veil discussing Ghost boxes and what the voices have revealed.
The schedule is packed with special guest, fascinating sessions, and lots of vendors. Click here for the schedule, http://www.throughtheveil.org/2015-Schedule.html. Tickets are still available. Less than a month away. See you there!
API Joins True Ghost Stories Series
The API Gals are joining the True Ghost Stories family. Archer Paranormal Investigations represents Team Georgia for the upcoming series scheduled to debut on June 15th. The series follows 15 paranormal teams from the United States, Canada, and Europe as they investigate paranormal activity. The series is unique because nothing is scripted! The hour-long episodes showcase what investigations are truly like.
Larry Overman, owner of the Crescent Mine where the incredibly popular Ghost Mine was filmed, created Tesla Wolf Media, which will produce the series. The series will be available on Roku and on Paranoia TV. Sherri Emily, founder of L.I.F.E. Omni Radio (www.wlor.net), joins as an executive producer. Nick Sarlo, founder of the paranormal team Shadow Hunters, directs.
API’s first episode was filmed at a residential home built to resemble a medieval castle. The episode titled “Haunting at the Castle” premieres this summer. The API Gals are currently filming two additional episodes. Join the API Gals at Through the Veil, www.throughtheveil.org, June 5-7 in Atlanta, Georgia to see trailers and special video features. Tune in June 15th and watch some of the best paranormal teams doing what they love best: ghost hunting!

Ghost Cop: Investigating with Stacey Jones
People have been investigating paranormal activity for hundreds of years. Yes. Hundreds of years. Don’t let the expansion of cable networks and the influx of paranormal reality TV shows fool you. Likewise, there are people who have spent decades investigating. Further, some of these people like to share their tips, techniques, and antidotes with others. One such person is Stacey Jones, the nation’s leading paranormal investigator.
Stacey started investigating in 1984 while a police officer in New York. She founded the Central New York Ghost Hunters (CNYGH) and was lovingly christened the “Ghost Cop.” She has investigated over 1,000 haunted locations, has been featured on two A Haunting episodes, and has appeared on various paranormal reality TV shows. Her tale is cautionary; her teenage son attracted a nasty spirit on a seemingly benign cemetery investigation. It took 12 months to exorcize the demon from him. Her other stories are just as riveting.
She has since retired from the police force and team investigating. Instead, Stacey frequently shows up at public investigations and dives right in. She joined the Archer Paranormal Investigations team (API Gals) and some of our friends on our investigation at the Old Hawkinsville State Hospital, also known as Taylor Memorial Hospital. And we were thrilled to the point of giddy to share the evening with her.
Stacey brings over 30 years of experience and common sense to an investigation. She is a life-long researcher and reader of the paranormal, religion, and history. She knows a lot. I mean a lot. She is highly likeable and engaging. She treats everyone, living and dead, with the utmost of respect. She does not confront or threaten or yell. The only obscenities are aimed toward herself. While dumping some of her equipment into her folding chair, Stacey deftly balanced the chair with her coffee while proclaiming herself, “the laziest bitch investigator today.” Not quite! She is hardworking—listening, analyzing, and contemplating where the activity may originate from.
Some of our friends were investigating for the first time. Stacey patiently displayed her equipment, encouraging them to try them out. She provided tips and techniques. She took the group under her wing and started searching for evidence. On short breaks she entertained us with battle stories and commentary. She doesn’t namedrop. Nor is she boastful. Deep in her heart, Stacey is a teacher. She relishes explaining the how-tos and whys. I learned quite a bit!
Whenever possible, investigate with an authority. Paranormal “celebrities” have packed tour schedules. Check online for upcoming investigations. You will learn new investigation techniques. Stacey likes to holler, “Hello. I can’t see you.” Love that! What a great way to engage with a spirit? It’s non-threatening and allows them to come forward—if they so choose.
You will glean information. They bring different equipment, and you may get to test them out. We tested out the Bionic Ear. 2L Lisa immediately purchased the following morning.
They also reinforce techniques you may already utilize. For instance, Stacey doesn’t confront, she remains respectful, she thanks them, and she prays before and after an investigation. These are all things that the API Gals do. Guessing I’m going to be getting another folding chair to traipse across abandoned buildings and cemeteries so I can be like Stacey.
For more information on Stacey, please view her Website http://ghostcop.org/. I look forward to investigating again with Stacey. It was a wonderful experience. Even the torrential downpour couldn’t dampen our excitement. Just like 2L, I love me some Stacey Jones!
Finally—Hawkinsville State Hospital
Tomorrow Archer Paranormal Investigations, API, travels to Hawkinsville, Georgia to investigate the Old Hawkinsville State Hospital, also known as Taylor Memorial Hospital (http://www.theoldhawkinsvillehospital.com/). This marks my first public investigation, where people have paid to participate in an investigation. In addition to the API Gals, we will be investigating with some of our former clients and friends. I am beyond excited!
I first learned of the OHSH from an episode of Ghost Stalkers (2014), Season 1, Episode 3, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4193834/?ref_=ttep_ep3. John Tenney and Chad Lindberg collected some extremely compelling evidence. Therefore, my expectations are high. Actually, the mere opportunity for investigating in an incredibly old and defunct hospital meets that high expectation. I’m not sure what I will do if we collect any evidence. A few choice phrases come to mind, but, hey, this is a PG-13 blog.
Seekers of Spirits (SOS) Ghost Hunters, http://www.sosghosthunters.com/, have exclusive permission from the owners to conduct tours and hold investigations. This paranormal group is working to preserve the hospital, as well as, the incredible and sometimes tragic history of the hospital. I respect this group and look forward to meeting them. In addition, I applaud their strict enforcement against Ouija Boards, séances, and rituals. Personally, I am against the use of such items. Moreover, I find that most people who use these items often abuse them.
I am off to pack, charge batteries, and collect items that I usually don’t bring on investigations (i.e., lawn chairs, surplus extension cords, and snacks).
Look for an update next week. I will be posting pictures and more.
The API Gals are heading back to the Castle for Episode 2, Season 1. 2L Lisa captured a woman humming on her digital voice recorder. Filming starts in mid-April, 2015. Look for a trailer from Episode 1, Season 1 to be released May 2015.
The API Gals are part of the True Ghost Stories Family. A huge announcement is forthcoming.
API begins filming Episode 1: The Castle on March 21, 2015. The API Gals return to debunk evidence from their prior investigation. Like us on Facebook for behind-the-scenes extras. API is a proud family member of True Ghost Stories.
