Founded in 1996 as the Capital Ghost Forum,
The SSP Explores Ghosts, Spirits, Angels, UFOs, Psychic
Phenomena & the Paranormal Realm in Mid-State PA
ABOUT S.S.P. - Formerly the Capital Ghost Forum, the Spirit Society of PA remains a non-profit interest group
dedicated to exploring ghosts, hauntings and other paranormal phenomenon.  We have expanded our scope to include a
wide spectrum of "life after life" subjects.  We conduct investigations of sites that are reported to be haunted, obtaining
photographic, video, audio and other documentation using common-sense protocols designed to ensure that natural events
are not mistaken for evidence of the paranormal.  SSP was founded as the Capital Ghost Forum in 1996 by Kelly Weaver,
a psychic-medium who grew up in a haunted 19th Century home and her husband John, who relys on a variety of
equipment to substantiate her findings.  Unlike some groups, we recognize the contributions of
responsible intuitives
(those who have demonstrated their talent and remain in control of their emotions) and their ability to direct us to and
even attract activity.  However, we are also committed to obtaining correlating evidence of the validity of their
observations through video, photo, audio, EM and thermal data.    
(Our investigation protocols are based on those established
by Troy Taylor and the
American Ghost Society, for which SSP Founder Kelly Weaver is a Regional Investigator)    

MEETINGS & ACTIVITIES - SSP's monthly meetings are open to the public; they are held at the New Cumberland Senior
Citizens' Center on the second Monday of each month at 7pm.  A $5 donation is requested to offset expenses, which
include rental of our new meeting facility and print copies of our monthly newsletter,
Apparitions.   Group members who
have gained experience in  field investigations are assigned to small teams which represent the SSP (as many sites are
not conducive to large groups of people).  Several special events are held each year, including "History & Mystery" tours
at regional locations where hauntings have been reported.  Both those who want to activly investigate the paranormal or
just discuss it in a forum setting are welcome in our group.  

WHAT WE ASK - SSP supports a responsible approach to investigating the paranormal, and insists that members obey all
posted regulations such as found at cemeteries, battlefields and other public sites.  With EVP and other data offering more
substantial evidence of the pararnomal than photos of questionable anomalies ("orbs") we suggest that one need not wait
until dark (and violate regulations).   With the Gettysburg Battlefield being a frequent visit for many members we
emphasize the recognition of this land as hallowed ground and are committed to battlefield preservation. We also assure
anyone who approaches us to investigate their home or business will have their name/location remain anonymous, if so
desired.  We recognize that the public perception of those who experience the paranormal is not always a positive one, and
have at times even described ourselves as an
"AA for people who have ghosts".  We are here to investigate, help and find
answers, not to ridicule or sensationalize.  Please join us on our mission!
