Welcome to WNY Paranormal Investigators Our group was formed in December of 2008. A small group of family, friends and coworkers all with an interest in the paranormal. We decided that our first investigation should be The Iron Island Museum. We took one of their ghosts of Christmas past tours, it was awesome. The place was booked for overnight investigations until the end of Feb. 2009, so we had to wait until then. Meetings were held, we familiarized ourselves with equipment. The investigation was incredible...... Now come and meet our current Family ...Read about our investigation procedure and some of the equipment we use.

Our Current Family of Investigators
Suzanne ---Founder; Lead Investigator -- My profession is as a Certified Occupational Therapist, for the past 16 years and before that as a Pastry Chef. My fascination with the paranormal has been growing over many years. I have always been intrigued by the unexplained and the supernatural. When we were in the process of putting together our
family of investigators I was a little nervous. There is a difference between sitting on the side lines and reading the books, watching the shows/movies and listening to the stories of others. It's another thing to throw yourself into the mix and be the one seeking out the truth and the mystery of all you've heard. I knew that I would know which way I would go after my first investigation. I would say, "No Way!" or "That was Awesome!". Let me tell you, it was AWESOME!.
Every moment not knowing what was going to happen, what you might hear or feel, or what your team was experiencing in another area, was unbelievable. I knew I was hooked from there. My husband James is an incredible supporter and member of the team. Our son thinks we're nuts! .... So on that note..... "Long live the nuts!" ... because now he is a member of our team!
James --- Investigator -- a chef by trade I'm Suzanne's husband and #1 paranormal supporter. Got my interest in ghost hunting "by trying to read and Suzanne would constantly be watching these ghost hunting and paranormal shows, soon I found myself reading less pages and following the shows and the interest just grew"..."EVP's are awesome!!, can't wait to catch something on film. " Dave --- Investigator -- I don't know what to say. Started watching Ghost Hunters and liked the way they tried to disprove everything and look for a logical explantion. Always liked ghost stories and want to see if there is more to it and can it really be proven.
Gina --- Investigator/Group Sensitive --- I've been a chef for over 20 yrs. I come from a family of 'sensitives' and have 7 kids, 3 of which are 'sensitives'. I am an ordained minister and also have studied forensic sciences; sociology; psychology & theology. I also studied under a psychic from Lilydale. Al--- Investigator ---" Ever since I can recall, I have always had an interest in the paranormal. Even though I have yet to have a personal paranormal experience, I have always been open to the possibility of a spiritual existence after this physical one. Of course, there are many reasons I chose to become a member of the WNYPI team. However, the two primary one's I would say, are to further foster this fascination I have with the spiritual realm. In so doing I am hoping to gain a greater sensitivity to its existence, and to hopefully learn more about myself in the process. There are many unknown and powerful forces that reside, not only, in our physical realm but in other planes of existence as well. There are rare instances when the physical and spiritual planes of existence can and do intersect with each other. It is at this moment, when the veil between the physical and the spiritual world is at its thinnest, that one can pull it back slightly and in so doing, be given the rarest of opportunities and privileges to peer into this unknown and mysterious realm" Ryan--- Investigator--- I joined because I have always had a fascination with the after life, from ancient Egypt to the paranormal life. My mother really got my interest going when she started to get externally into it. I have since enjoyed all I have experienced and learned along the way.
Nick--- Investigator--- "I’ve been interested in the paranormal for quite a few years now and joined WNYPI to help explain the many odd things that happen to others. I have had a few paranormal experiences that I cannot explain, as have a few of my friends and family. My goal is to capture evidence of the paranormal, and help others who are afraid of what they can’t see or understand"
Here is some of the equipment we have and may use in the investigation, and what each may be able to tell us:
Thermometer ---- It is theorized that when an entity tries to manifest or communicate it draws energy from its surroundings, affecting air temperature and causing hot or cold spots.Our digital thermometer is used to determine air temperature in a specific spot.
DigitalCameras --- We use digital cameras to take pictures throughout our investigation to try and capture evidence of paranormal activity or manifestations.
Closed Circuit Security Cameras ---During our investigation, we will set up stationary infrared night vision security cameras and Dvr system to be able to monitor different rooms from a central command area.This enables us to be able to watch for & record paranormal phenomena in a room without actually being in the room, and allows us to monitor up to 4 areas at the same time on one screen as the investigation is occurring. We also have 6 separate cameras and webcams which connect to our laptop computers enabling us to cover more area.
Digital Voice Recorder --- Digital Voice Recorders are used to try and capture Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs).
Electromagnetic Field Detector/K2 Meter --- All electronic devices produce energy, and this energy produced around an electronic device is an electromagnetic field.It is said that a very high reading of an electromagnetic field- particularly one that appears to move- may be an entity trying to manifest itself, producing a 'spike' in energy.Electromagnetic Field Detectors (EMFs) are used to monitor these levels of energy.
Mel-meter --- An instrument especially designed for paranormal investigations, it combines an EMF detector and digital temperature reader.
Green 30mW Laser Grid:This high powered laser emits a grid of green dots useful for detecting shadows or general visual disturbances during an investigation. We set it in front of a running camera to catch potential evidence.
EVP Field Processor: The E.F.P. was developed and has been tested by the American Paranormal Research Association, proving to be a valuable tool when conducting E.V.P. investigations. Its “real time, high visibility” Green with Red center LED display allows us to view E.V.P. responses easily in dark locations. This feature allows the investigation teams the ability to capture E.V.P. evidence on video. The device has a “white noise baseline adjustment” allowing the user, to set the baseline level on the devices illuminated scale. This provides a “visual reference” to see in real time any “addition” or “reduction” of proprietary frequency noise. The EVP Field Processor’s built in circuitry filters and amplifies input signals to extremely high levels allowing our team to visually monitor E.V.P. responses at higher resolution. The input to the device connects to our digital recording devices. The E.F.P. also can be used with earphones or speakers to listen to “real time” EVP sessions.
The addition of a Field Trap Camera and motion sensors has allowed us to monitor more areas. The trap camera will detect motion and capture it on still pictures or video using inferred lights.
When you contact us and request an investigation, we'll first start off with asking that you complete a questionnaire that describes the circumstances surrounding your house/business/area in question and the activity that you are experiencing.We will also do a phone interview to talk with you more about the phenomena and to set up an agreed upon time to interview you in person. We will then meet
with our team, go over the interview and case and discuss a day/time to perform the investigation.
Before the investigation, our team will also try to research into the history of your location to see if there are any related facts or interesting events that may be related to what you are experiencing.
We realize and respect our clients' individual needs and circumstances.Because of this, not all investigations are conducted in the exact same way, and not all equipment or methods are used in every investigation. We will come into your home/business set up our equipment and carry out the investigation. Most common situation would involve setting up night vision cameras in 'hotspot' areas, taking base Emf & temperature readings. Then dividing into teams of 2 and conduct Evp sessions while also monitering Emf & temperature changes if any.
After the investigation, information gathered will be thoroughly reviewed and critiqued.Because of the extensive amount of information gathered and our dedication to providing you with the highest-quality services possible, this may take a few days.Once we have reviewed all of the evidence, we will present you with our findings.Clients will be offered a copy of the relevant findings and investigation summary.
