The Chicago Ghost Conference
will go down in history as the first ghosthunters'
convention ever held in the city of Chicago.
For the first time, field investigators,
authors, historians, folklorists, artists,
sensitives, and enthusiasts from every walk
of life will come together in one of the
world's most haunted cities for a weekend
of learning, discovery, and--of course--ghosthunting.

Tour Played Host To The Chicago Ghost
Confrence, and Greg Myers of PTF.
Ursula Bielski is the founder
of Chicago Hauntings, Inc. An historian,
author, and parapsychology enthusiast,
she has been writing and lecturing about
Chicago's supernatural folklore and the
paranormal for nearly 20 years, and is
recognized as a leading authority on the
Chicago region's ghostlore and cemetery
history. She is the author of five popular
and critically acclaimed books on the
same subjects, all published by Lake Claremont
Ursula's interests in Chicago
ghost hunting began at a young age. She
grew up in a haunted house on Chicago's
north side and received an early education
in Chicago history from her father, a
Chicago police officer, who introduced
Ursula to the ghosts at Graceland Cemetery,
Montrose Point and the old lockup at the
storied Maxwell Street Police Station.
Since that time Ursula has been involved
in countless investigations of haunted
sites in and around Chicago, including
such notorious locales as Wrigley Field,
the Congress Hotel, the Indiana Dunes,
the Red Lion Pub, Hull House, Bachelors
Grove Cemetery, Rose Hill Cemetery, haunted
Archer Avenue, Chinatown, the Eastland
disaster site, Death Alley, Dillinger's
Alley and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre
site. Her paranormal travels have also
led her to investigate sites as diverse
and infamous as the Bell Witch Cave in
Tennessee; the Oshkosh, Wisconsin Opera
House; New Orleans' House of the Rising
Sun; the City Cemetery in Key West, Florida;
and the Civil War Battlefield at Gettysburg,

Dr. Sally Rhine Feather
- (Parapsychology 101)
Dr. Sally Rhine Feather
is the eldest daughter of Dr. J.B.
Rhine, known as the "father of
ESP research." She practically
grew up at the Parapsychology Lab
at Duke University, where her father's
famous ESP card tests led to “Extrasensory
Perception” becoming a household
word in America. After obtaining a
Bachelor's Degree in Biology, Dr.
Feather returned to her father's laboratory
to work on ESP experiments and research.
She then earned a Doctorate in Experimental
Psychology from Duke University.
Dr. Feather is a licensed clinical
psychologist, completing her postdoctoral
fellowship in clinical psychology
at the University of North Carolina.
She also founded the Psychic Experience
Group (PEG) at the Rhine Research
Center which functions as a support
group allowing people who have had
troubling psychic experiences to meet
and share those experiences without
fear of ridicule or judgment. Dr.
Feather's current parapsychology focus
is developing the Rhine Research Center's
research program investigating the
possibility of applying psi ability
to the health and healing field.
