Looking for haunted places near you? Almost every community has a “haunted” cemetery. Some of the best are from the late 18th and 19th centuries, when grave markers and headstones conveyed a rich sense of history.

In addition, here’s one of my far older videos explaining ways to find haunted cemeteries, based on the kinds of features and graves in them.
Here’s the related, short book to introduce you to ghost hunting and “haunted” cemeteries. Ghost Hunting in Haunted Cemeteries – A quick-start guide for beginners.
It’s in Kindle – and FREE in Kindle Unlimited – and covers the key points every beginner should know, to have a successful cemetery investigation.
