Ghosts Then and Now

This is a one-and-a-half page handout from one of my Dragon Con presentations about ghost hunting.  In it, I highlighted some key events that contributed to ghost hunting and research as we know it in the early 21st century.

This isn’t a complete listing, but it’s a good starting point for anyone who’d like to track the history of ghost hunting and how beliefs have informed today’s investigations and views of the spirit world.
