International Ghost Registry
Formed in California to preserve and investigate records of
hauntings and ghostly phenomena throughout the world. The
major objectives included preserving firsthand records of ghost
sightings that might otherwise have been lost, cataloging and
recording ghost lore from individual geographic regions, encouraging
careful evaluation and documentation of ghostly
phenomena, and providing a central file for use by researchers
and writers in parapsychology. The registry was administered
by the International Society for the Investigation of Ghosts. It
was active in the 1980s but has since become inactive.
