The following list is an informative ghost hunting guide to help you with preparing your ghost-hunt, during your conduction and after you've finished your spirit search. If I think of anything else I'll be sure to update this list.
Always ask permission when conducting a ghost-hunt on private property or areas open to the public only during the day. If you can't locate the owner, simply find another area to hunt, it's not worth getting caught and possibly paying a fine or jail-time.
Be sure that all your equipment is functional and that battery-packs are fully charged and ready to go. However, spirits can and sometimes will interfere with electrical devices, causing them to improperly function, deplete the battery very quickly or the device may fail to work altogether for the time spent there.
If possible bring equipment that require no batteries, such as a compass, or a old mercury-thermometer in the case that the electrical piece of equipment does stop working. Always be sure to bring extra batteries and battery-packs just in the case that the batteries are depleted, this usually ends a ghost-hunt rather quickly.
If you're hunting at night time, go scope out the area during the day, you don't want to just arrive at night in the dark and fall into a hole you're unaware of or trip over stuff, that wouldn't be any fun. With the above bullet mentioned, always go with a group... never go alone, if something does happen who is going to help you?
Don't wear any kind of scented fragrance, this could cause issues with other group members in thinking that they smell something out of the ordinary when in fact it's just your super-strong bouquet of roses perfume or cologne. Bring some snacks if you plan on being at a location for awhile. Don't let hungry issues ruin your ghostly-search.
Don't perform a search within an altered state of mind such as being drunk, high or something similar. You should perform a ghost-hunt professionally with the intention of communication and gathering proof, not partying and possibly angering the spirits that are there, if any.
Get lots of sleep prior. Be sure that you have proper photo-identification in the case that authorities are called.
This is an informative guide on where you are more likely to find ghosts, generally the most common hot-spots to hunt for ghosts are places where there was a violent-history(where murders have taken place) or any other combination of violence that lead to the death of a person or multiple-deaths of more than one persons.
Great starting areas that are common in many places are battlefields or anyplace that a war has taken place, for example: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. You can find a lot of information online referencing Gettysburg as a big hot-spot for paranormal-activity. Listed below are other areas of common ghostly-activity. Be sure to ask for permission when hunting on private-property.
Indian Burial Grounds - May be hard to come by in some areas, but if you have authorized access to one of these(or if it's in the woods somewhere), definitely give it a shot. I've heard many stories of mysterious paranormal activity happening at these areas(Though I've never been to any, yet). Remember be respectful and try to do your best not to disturb that in which dwells within. Oh, and take lots of pictures!
Cemeteries - This is probably the most common place people search to find evidence of ghosts, demons, whatever else. The older the cemetery the better. It's probably in your best interest to look up the history on the cemetery you plan to hunt at first(if possible)and to ask permission from the owner if you plan on searching after hours.
Most cemeteries(if not all)have some sort of paranormal activity going on at some point, capturing anything paranormal usually is just a matter of patience in lots of cases, if you fail to capture anything paranormal the first time, don't be discouraged! try again at another date.
Abandoned Coal Mines - These are normally great for ghost hunts. As many mines have records of many accidental-deaths. Many spirits still haunt these locations as I found out first hand. They may be thinking that what they're doing is just going about their day of work prior to their accident or maybe they know you're there and want to be mischievous.
Ask lots of questions records lots of video, EVP and take pictures. However, be very careful at a place like this, NEVER go under ground in an abandoned mine. Stay on the surface, be cautious of your surrounds and know where everyone else is on your team at all times! If it looks a bit too dangerous, go ghost hunt elsewhere.
Below you will find listed the various types of devices and gadgets used often when performing a ghost hunt, if you want to know how to hunt ghosts. Many experienced ghost hunters use some, if not all of these devices while searching for/trying to communicate with ghosts, spirits, demons, poltergeists, and etc.
Some pieces of ghost equipment are basic and require a low level of experience or just common-sense to use. There's no absolute right way to find or communicate with spirits. If they are around and want to make their presence felt, heard, sensed or seen they'll find a way to do it without any needed equipment most of the time.
However, sometimes you may need special-equipment to "capture" an apparition or to at least try to prove your point that you've just seen a ghost. I'll be adding to this list as time goes on.
Useful to tell time with, also good to log the time of your arrival and the time of departure.
OK, now batteries are the most important pieces of equipment you'll need to bring during your ghostly hunt. It's no fun getting equipment set up and ready to go just to find out your battery life is near depletion. Might as well call it a night then. Be sure if you're using battery-packs that they're fully-charged, bring a spare just in case. Bring extra batteries for cameras, flashlights, whatever else that requires AA or other types of batteries.

I’d like to thank two good friends for providing me with a bit of information to complete this E-book. Thanks greatly, Joe Tokish and Phil Carter!

At the early age of 12, I had already been blown away when I had witnessed my first paranormal-event. At a time when most, if not all boys are still learning about the world around them, I was granted the opportunity to witness the world beyond our own, first-hand. It’s a mystical, mysterious-place with methods that defy anything we know here on Earth; While I have no way of proving that or what I (and a handful of others) had seen that night, the memory of what was…will forever remain.
I wrote about this specific-experience if you care to give it a read, here:
With the above said, I’d like to acknowledge that, while all hauntings share similarities, no two hauntings are the same. Therefore, I cannot guarantee that the information provided within this book will rid your home of any unwanted entity for certain. However, I do guarantee that I provide every bit of information to my knowledge on the most common and best practiced methods that work for many others to rid their homes.
I hope that this book helps you with your haunting and you’re finally able to live your life free of any unwanted spirits!
