)-- Author Elizabeth Eagan-Cox is taking the concept of librarian-style research into the ghost investigation community with a new type of reference book. The Ghost Hunters Research Guide to Free Internet Sources shows ghost hunters how to conduct in-depth, precise background research on a 24-7 basis from the ease of their own computer.
Eagan-Cox explains, "Never before has a ghost investigator been able to access this type of a road map into Cyberspace. My reference book shows them how to access free Internet sites that give them the information they need, when they need it. All the sites in the book are authentic primary sources, chosen for their evidential and factual information in data banks that are legally accessible by the public. The sources include government sites as well as institutions of higher education and professional organizations from all sectors of business, industry and society. I have drawn form my expertise as a former librarian/reference resource specialist and as a genealogist to custom-tailor this book for ghost hunters."
Among the resources in the book ghost hunters can expect to find the how-to instructions for researching: When and where a person died. Locate graves and cemeteries. Find nicknames, abbreviations, name translations and origins. Communicate in the vocabulary of the ghost. Read and date old-style handwriting. Research shipwrecks and natural disasters. Access the life of a ghost in the U.S. Census: 1790 to 1940. Research ghosts that are African, Slave, Freedmen, Immigrant and Indentured Servant. Lumberjack, Pirate, Waiter or Witch? Occupations and associations. Get the facts about haunted or stigmatized property. Determine a ghost’s wealth and lifestyle. Apparition or Hallucination? Facts on drugs, medication, food and lifestyle interactions. Client’s personal history records. Does your client have a hidden agenda? Ownership and tax history of haunted property.
