What we're about

Boston Paranormal Investigators was formed in March, 2006 to promote research into all aspects of the paranormal; hauntings, UFOs, parapsychology, and any other topics that fit under this umbrella. Members enjoy the following benefits:

* Structured field investigations

* Monthly meetings for planning and reporting

* Assistance in conducting individual investigations

* Examination/peer reviewing/classification of evidence

* Publishing and dissemination of findings

* Online repository for written reports and collected evidence

We also focus on sharing our findings and educating the general public on these subjects by lecturing, helping to produce films, podcasts, and books, and participating in regional conventions and other events. In our research, we take a scientific approach and try to find natural explanations for reported phenomena, while keeping an open mind. Additionally, we attempt to capture measurable, verifiable evidence using such tools as Infrared camcorders, EMF meters, Ambient Temperature Sensors, REM Pods, Static Field Meters, Digital Recorders, Thermal Imaging Cameras, Spirit Box/Frequency Sweepers, Motion Sensors, Digital Cameras, and similar technologies. In addition, we recognize the complementary value of psychics, sensitives, mediums, and others, and welcome their assistance. Our members have been featured on SyFy's Ghost Hunters and on the Biography Channel.

Active members must reside in the metropolitan Boston area. No previous experience required, just a serious interest in the paranormal and a commitment to attend monthly business meetings and investigations. If you are interested in joining our team, want to ask a question, arrange for a speaker or presentation, or request help with a haunting, please email barry@corbettfeatures.com or message me directly on Meetup.

Monthly Meeting

Location visible to members

Members attending business meetings must reside within the metropolitan Boston area. If you have applied for membership you'll be asked to supply some basic contact information and a brief description of any relevant experience. Once approved as a full member, you'll receive the details for our next Zoom meeting, and our monthly newsletter listing upcoming investigations.

Meetings are somewhat informal. We discuss details for upcoming investigations, examine audio or video evidence captured during a previous event, possible sites for future outings, and the status of private investigations.
