The Ghost Hunting 101 Course at Owen’s Community College begins Thursday September 28, 2017 – October 19, 2017 6pm-8pm

This course is designed to give you a deeper insight into the world of paranormal investigation. Paranormal investigation requires a cautious approach backed up with scientific methodology. Learn some of best practices for ghost hunting, investigating, reviewing evidence, and presenting evidence to your client. Learn from long time paranormal investigator Harold St. John, founder of the Toledo Ohio Ghost Hunters Society. We will study the different types of hauntings, a typical case study of a “Haunting,” the essential investigating equipment, the investigation process, and how to deal with the aftermath of an investigation. Students will learn hands-on use of equipment, proper investigation documentation, and safety protocols. The class will end with a field trip to hone the skills you have learned.

Learn from veteran paranormal investigator Harold St. John, founder of the Toledo Ohio Ghost Hunters Society. If you have taken Ghost Hunting 101, and have had an investigation you might want to bring your documented evidence such as pictures, EVP’s or video to share with your classmates. There will be three classes of lecture and discussions, and end with a field trip to hone the skills you have learned.

  5. Don Collins says:

    Hello, I was just doing some research on the net and happened across your site. (It’s always interesting to check out the “competition” LOL) You have a very nice website. I am a co-director of Fringe Paranormal based in Toledo. We have been together for 2 years with this team and previously served with another now defunct team. I noticed that you are planning on doing a Grassman investigation. Several of our members have expressed an interest in this same thing. Perhaps if you would be willing we could team up on this investigation? In any event we would love to hear back from you and discuss working together sometime.
    Thanks, Don Director Fringe Paranormal

    hey im not looking to join a group, im looking for a group. Me and my family are living in the toledo area and in our house we have seen a ghost of a woman and I mean a solid figure of a woman in our house. She has been peeking in rooms, opening doors, turning on/off TVs and turning them up. please give me some help or advice on what to do.

    • Harold says:

      Judy,
      Give me a call when you get a minute
      419-377-3298
      Thanks Harold

    • Pete says:

      talk to her. Let her know that you know shes there and and tell her se doesnt need to do those things to get your attention. She might still do little things but not quite so obvious.

  7. Harold says:

    Judy,
    My email address is haroldstjohn@aol.com

  8. Melissa says:

    Hi~

    I need help…. My family & I live in a West Toledo residence which, over the past few months, seem to have picked up extreme activity. It seemed to peek in June / early July and lately (knock on wood) seems to have settled down; however, the experience has totally disrupted family life. I don’t know if we are dealing with the “poltergeist” experience as my daughter is soon to be 11; however, just a myriad of things that leave even me feeling unsettled. All 4 members of my family have now had experiences and even went as far as blessing the house with holy water. My husband, who didn’t believe before, had his own encounter and just brought home sage for scrubbing.

    Any advice to how we get back to a sense of normalcy?

  9. Received your message, Email me off board at haroldstjohn@aol.com

  10. Kim says:

    Have you ever heard of anything happening at the Seville Apartments on Lockwood and Berdan? Our owner bought the Seville awhile back and workers there have had some experiences while rehabing it. The building was built in the 1920’s so I was just curious if anything has ever been reported. Any history on the place?

  11. Ana says:

    Hello, a friend and I are wondering if it would be possible to participate in an investigation to get a feel for paranormal investigating. Would it be possible to “shadow” your group? Thank you
