Who we are: GOLAPS team members are professionals, each with long-standing interests in paranormal and supernatural phenomena. We have over 100 years combined experience in working with such phenomena, and we offer out investigative services for little or no monetary compensation. We each have a passion for this and are always seeking new sites to investigate. Although we most often investigate benign hauntings (which can certainly be frightening for the client), we are fearless and will not hesitate to investigate malevolent hauntings and suspected demonic activity. All investigations are absolutely confidential, and no information or evidence, such as photos or EVP's, are made public without the client's express written permission.
We are always seeking new cases, so if you know of an interesting haunted site that we can investigate, or you are experiencing a haunting or other frightening activity in your home or office or on your property, don't hesitate to contact us!
