INTRODUCTION - Investigation of the Paranormal
Investigating the paranormal is said to have begun in the late 1800s following the Spiritualist movement in the mid 1800s. The Spiritualists believed that the deceased could communicate through what are called "mediums". This often occurred during a seance where there where physical manifestations and/or messages through the medium. As in all things, there were genuine practitioners and there were fakes.
Shortly after the Spiritualist movement gained in popularity it created both skeptics and believers. Individual scientists began to investigate the claims of the mediums looking for a rational explain at ion. Today there are many modern tools available to investigators of the paranormal in addition to the more traditional methods.
This DVD is an actual, not dramatized for TV, paranormal investigation. Are there really ghosts or spirits in these two locations? Follow along with the videographer as he follows the investigators ... and come to your own conclusions.

At The Hyland House Museum (Guilford CT), which dates to c.1690, The investigators interview Colin Makenzie and gain insight into the history of the house and museum. Using EMF (Electromagnetic Field) meters, cameras and audio recorders, they obtain evidence of spirit activity. Of particular interest are digital images of two "orbs" which were seen after the photos were reviewed: One in the attic near some childrens' toys and one in the dining room where the deceased were waked in the 1700s.
At the Bee and Thistle Inn (Old Lyme CT), dating from 1756, was originally a personal residence and is now a nine-bedroom inn and restaurant. Linnea Rufo, one of the owners, recounts the many strange events and sounds which she and guests have experienced. While the EMF and other meters discovered little spirit activity, the investigators turned to alternate, old school spirit determination techniques. This video shows a water glass being manipulated by spirit energy and a "table tipping" where a question and answer session ensues between participants and spirits.
BACKGROUND - Author's notes
Producing the Wamsutta Club paranormal investigation was a change of venue for us, and a lot of fun. So guess what? We repeated the experience but added a few twists. Seeing the water glass move around the table was spooky. I even took a break from behind the camera and participated in the experiment. And I surely wasn't pushing the glass around and neither were any of the others. Call it spirit energy.
The table tipping at the Bee and Thistle was the most exciting example of spirit communications. People at the table asked the spirits questions ... and darned if they didn't answer. The hardest part of producing this video was editing the hour-long table tipping session to twenty minutes. There were a few spirits we had to leave out to keep the video moving along.
All in all, it was a great experience ... chalk another one up to my sister Linda.
