Founded in 2001 in Lawton OK, for paranormal investigation and research. Southwest Oklahoma Ghost Chasers, (SWOGC) has had many investigations in the last 17 years plus a very successful Paranormal Conference July 19 2008. We look for proof or lack of proof in an investigation, this includes audio and video proof. We spend many pain-staking hours reviewing all audio and video from investigations and researching all history we can find on the location.

Differences Between an Investigation and a Ghost Hunt:
Ghost Investigation: is going to a known/reported haunted place and recording data (video, photos, audio, temperature and any other thing that cannot be explained) notes, interview and other evidence to prove/disprove the haunting. Assist the owner and the spirit in moving on and leaving the place if desired. The assistance can be either you directly assisting the owner in any way that you can with the situation or putting them in contact with an experienced group or individual. Check them out thoroughly before you put the owners in contact with them so they may resolve the situation. Your assistance can be something as simple as educating them on every aspect that will assist them on what is happening and their options.
Ghost Hunt: going to a suspected haunted place trying catch activity on film, video, or as an eyewitness to the activity. Example: house, old buildings, hotels, cemeteries or any number of places to start with ( schools, churches too)
