About Us

The Minnesota Paranormal Study Group in 2010 aboard the SS William A. Irvin, Duluth, MN.

WHO IS THE MINNESOTA PARANORMAL STUDY GROUP?

The Minnesota Paranormal Study Group (MNPSG) is a not-for-profit organization that researches claims of the ghosts and haunting activity in Minnesota. Much like our TAPS counterpart, we want to try to debunk the claims of a haunting. If we do discover a place to be haunted, we offer consultation and our services to help those in need to understand and reach a livable situation with the occurrences.

The team consists of normal people who lead normal lives but have a strong interest in the field of paranormal research. Our group members come from all walks of life, backgrounds, and occupations.

 

WHAT DOES THE MNPSG DO?

The Minnesota Paranormal Study Group investigates claims of ghosts and haunting activity in public and private places. These places often include homes and businesses around Minnesota.

The group was built on three principles; investigation, consultation, and education. This is what we call the ICE principles. Through these simple fundamentals, we believe that we can offer assistance to those with so called paranormal problems.

The MNPSG believe that if these three principles are applied to the cases that we are involved in, our mission statement can be fully reached.

Our services are FREE of charge.

We believe in building a trusting relationship with those that invite us into their homes and businesses because sometimes it is hard to try explain what you can't explain or understand.

 

WHAT IS THE ICE PRINCIPLE?

The ICE principles are simple to understand and what our group was built upon. They are three simple things that we approach every investigation with. ICE stands for Investigation, Consultation, and Education.

INVESTIGATION

Through investigation, we approach cases with scientific equipment such as electromagnetic field detectors, digital cameras, digital recorders, and other equipment. Through our investigations, we are able to try to reproduce any stories that the client has experienced and believes in paranormal in nature. We try to find if there is a natural cause for these experiences such as high electromagnetic output from power sources, drafty rooms, a crazy neighbor, or just simply dust being caught in photographs.

Through investigations, we are able to gather and collect data on the location and occupants.

CONSULTATION

Through consultation, the Minnesota Paranormal Study Group is able to offer a listening ear to any problems that the client is having coping with the experiences in the location. We are there to listen to their stories and allow them to know that someone will listen to them and not think they are crazy.

Sometimes all one needs is someone to listen to them and let them know that others have the same problems as well. The MNPSG communication lines are constantly open with our clients, past and present, to share stories and experiences with us. In other words, if something happens after an investigation, we don't close the case file.

People deserve to feel comfortable in their own spaces whether that be at home or work.

EDUCATION

The most common cause of fear among people is the fear of the unknown. Think of going through a dark alley way and not knowing what or who awaits you in that dark space. It is a psychological effect among all human beings and if one does not understand or have the information to understand, this fear continues to grow.

Most haunted places have a quick "shock" experience within them. Perhaps a loud noise that happened to an employee or something was seen visually for a span of less than 30 seconds? People often have problems comprehending what caused these experiences and because of that, they will continue to fear having it happen again if they do not understand what it was.

The MNPSG explains our data that we collected as well as any experiences that we have at a location to those clients. We also try to explain what we think could have caused an experience to clients through widely accepted paranormal principles.

Knowing is half the battle and putting a face to a fear often removes that fear.

 

WHAT ABOUT PRIVACY?

The Minnesota Paranormal Study Group respects our clients privacy and this is often the first thing we discuss when we enter a location.

Obviously, we run this website and would like to be able to share any information or data that we collect from an investigation. However, we understand that some stories can damage a location's reputation as well as put a family's safety at risk if it's a home.

Because of that the MNPSG has a strict confidentiality policy which outlines what information gets released (if any), where it is released, and how to protect those involved if it is. Many times we list a home as a "private residence" if used on the website and no exterior pictures are shot of the location. Same goes for businesses.

Often times, we change the names of those involved if requested. We can also block out faces through pixelation.

 

CREDENTIALS

The Minnesota Paranormal Study Group has been recognized by many national paranormal research groups and has affiliates from all over the globe. We believe in building a trustful and respectable name for our group through hard work and dedication to the people who we help.

One of our most notable credits is being the sole Minnesota member of the TAPS Family Network. TAPS, or The Atlantic Paranormal Society, is the same group that is showcased on SciFi Channel's Ghost Hunters. (website) The TAPS Family Network is a select group of paranormal research teams that is chosen by the members of TAPS based on their information and help in the field of ghosts and hauntings.

Our membership in the TAPS Family Network allows us to exchange information about cases between other family members. In other words, if a Minnesota case is ever brought up to the TAPS team, it is referred to the MNPSG.
