Seems to be the standard question - I'm from Maryland, and interested in joining a research group, so if anyone has an opening for an enthusiastic totally non sensitive novice, do drop me a line :)

I live in Maryland 2; wow I thought I was the only one.

Sorry but I really don't know of any. The best thing to do is to go to your local library or look for posts in grocery stores, malls and things like that.
I smile because I have no idea of what's going on.

Hello.

I am Cryptkeeper.  I am an Area Representative for Troy Taylor's (the author) American Ghost Society.  If you do not mind to travel, you are welcome to join ODPI (Old Dominion Paranormal Investigators).  If you really do not want to travel, I can search through our Society and find a Maryland Based group if you would prefer.  All you have to do is let me know.

Old Dominion - That would be Around Virginia? If so, thats a little far from me - I'm up around the PA border, but if you don't mind a long-distance member, that would be great!

Woah! It'd be great to do once I get some more experience, but unfortunately I'm a total novice (although enthusiastic) when it comes to investigating the paranormal. Maybe once I've built up a bit of experience, that would be great :)

True Akthra, but I was thinking of starting a little smaller - I'm a born follower, rather than a born leader :P

I would love to do something like that though - I'm just not experienced doing anything paranormal, and if I'm going to do something, dammit, I'm going to go in armed with enough knowledge to have a chance of success. Or thats what I tell myself most days :)

Arawa,

Just let me know and I can train you very well.  I have went to Flamel College and gotten my Certification as a Paranormal Investigator.

You ought to do that I think the link is http://www.flamelcollege.org

Its an accredited college and it trains you in Paranormal, UFO's and the like.  The Paranormal Course is taught by my Society Leader and Founder, Troy Taylor.

You ought to look into it Arawa.  As thats the way to start.  They will train you to become a great Paranormal Investigator

Thanks for the link Crypt, I've been wondering what a good source for that type of training would be.  Thanks for the post!

Also, as side note-  I think practicing methods such as note taking and other proper investigation techniques can be effectively done in your own home.  There, you can practices going over a private residence top to bottom.  In fact, you can even practice the interviewing techniques with family or friends.  Using speach practicing skills I think would work well for interview practice.

I think a lot of investigating is very much identical to a crime scene or some other PI/detective work.  If you like to research, then investigating is a great activity.

Milegone that is part of the reason lol yes.  But it was also do to the fact that I did not think anyone knew prairieghosts existed.

Akthara, your absolutely right that is a good way to practice.  See I was a Drill Sergeant and MP in the Army so I guess my investigation skills come from that.

But I love the paranormal and love to train anyone who has a love for it.  So if I can be of any help to anyone do not hesitate to contact crypt lol.
