Halloween is upon us. When it comes to the paranormal, there are those who believe, urban legend skeptics who do not, and those who are simply unsure.
But if you are someone who has experienced a ghostly encounter or currently believes you have a haunting, there are places you can turn to. With these ghostbusting websites, you can locate help, get information, and report the event.
When you want to find a group of ghostbusters near you, check out ParanormalSocieties.com. This great resource has a directory covering over 4,000 teams across the United States. You can search for one nearby by city, state, keyword, society name, or society acronym.

4. Route 66 Paranormal Investigators
With a team of engineers and experts in audio, video, and forensics, Route 66 Paranormal Investigators might be the group to help you. They work to investigate and document paranormal activity as well as educate and assist those who live with a haunting.
They travel across the country to investigate sites, are insured and bonded, and offer years of experience. The Homepage has an email address for you to contact at the bottom of the founder’s biography.

8. The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS)
The Atlantic Paranormal Society is probably one of the most well-known paranormal resources. Founded in 1990, the team can be seen on the SYFY channel show Ghost Hunters. But they are not just stars of the show — they are experienced investigators of paranormal activities.
The website is under construction as I write this article, so contacting the team is limited if possible. In the meantime, you can still take a look at helpful articles like understanding your haunting or review audio and video TAPS evidence.
If you know for a fact that you have experienced a paranormal event, you can help further research by reporting it to the Paranormal Experience Registry. This service is provided by the Institute for the Study of Religious and Anomalous Experience.
You can also participle in a research study called The QPH. The purpose of the study is to research hauntings and haunting experiences. Just click New Study: QPH from the top to begin.
