We have put a lot of thought into coming up with a Universal EVP Classification System and we urge other paranormal investigators to consider adopting it, because most groups either don't use a classification system at all or they use the old standard classification system, which we do not feel is nearly descriptive enough for all of the different types of EVP's we have encountered.

Our classification system has 3 parts (Class, Level & Catagory) as follows:


Class:

Class DC ( Direct Communication) = The voice clearly answered a question or directly responded to something said.
Class PC (Personal Communication) = The voice clearly says something meaningful directly to someone that is present.
Class RC ( Random Communication) = A voice that answers no direct question, does not appear to be aimed at any particualr person and doesn't make sense in the context it was received. Totally random. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Level:

Level 1 = Loud, clear and easy to understand, sounds like natural speech (includes whispers and fast speech).
Level 2 = Lower volume and the voice is warped, but it is discernable.
Level 3 = Very low volume, hard to understand, excessively warped.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Catagory:

Morph = The voice and/or the words of someone who is speaking are changed into something else in the playback of the recording. Words that are different than the person spoke or one voice changing to another, etc.
ERV (Event Related Voices) = Events such as, someone talking or coughing or the sound of a passing car or train, etc. seemed to trigger the Electronic Voice Phenomenon.
TR (Thread Related) = One utterance is a comment on or a response to an utterance just before. They are related by contextual thread. Hearing two or more voices talking to each other or a voice responding to something previously said by itself and/or someone or "something" else.
CHR (Chorale) = Two or more voices are speaking at the same time, either saying the same thing or something different.

June 30, 2004 EVP's

"Help Me!" - This one is wierd, because later on in the night, the recorder was once again sitting on top of the mass grave monument and Brad and Pat went over to get something and a ghostly voice says, "Heeeelllp Meeee..." as soon as they reach the monument. Brad and Pat walk away a few seconds later then once again you hear "Heeeelp Meee" , only in a real faint voice that time (the second one isn't on here). Maybe 30 seconds or so later we were all standing not far from the monument talking and you hear, "Psssst.... Hey!", which you will hear in the next EVP. We have classified these two EVP's as Direct Communication.

"Pssst.... Hey!" - (As described above)

"Shrieking Woman's Scream" - We're not sure what this is, but it showed up in all of our audio (even in the audio of our video recorders), which were all in different locations. None of us remember hearing anything like this while we were there.

August 31, 2004 EVP's

"Help Me" - In this Direct Communication EVP, the audio recorder had been sitting on the mass grave monument and as soon as Pat Buzzard flipped the tape over and hit record this ghostly "Help Me" was recorded. This is very intriguing, because at least two more "Help Me's" were recorded at the mass grave monument on this night and during our June 30th investigation as well. One must wonder exactly what it is they need help with and what we could possibly do to help them....

"Woman Moaning" - About halfway through side B a ghostly mourning woman's voice is heard, followed by another "Help Me". Unfortunately, as many times there was a train passing through and the background noise is so high that the EVP can barely be heard, so we won't be posting it on the site.

* It also seems that something had been passing back and forth in front of the microphone at a couple different points and several other faint noises and whispers can be heard throughout the tape as well, but due to their faintness and excessive background noise they will not be posted.

October 1, 2004 EVP's

"I Need To Get Up.... Tripped Over!" - In this Direct Communication EVP, you will hear Aedryan talking about how on our other visits someone always says "Help Me!". Aedryan says, "If there is anyone here and you need help, tell us what you need help with and we'll see what we can do to help you.", etc. Immediately after that is said, you will hear a voice say, "I Need To Get Up.... Tripped Over!". If you listen closely you will actually hear a second voice saying, "I Hate You!" at the same time the other one is saying, "I Need To". Eeks!

May 1, 2005 EVP's

Direct Communication EVP's Obtained

"You're Waiting For The Picture To Tell You" - We believe this EVP to be direct communication, which we seem to get a lot of at the Chestnut Grove Cemetery. Matt had been reviewing his pictures on his camera's LED screen and showed one of them to Aedryan. Aedryan commented on the amount of dust in the air then this voice is immediately heard in the playback of our audio. It is as if a spirit had been looking over Matt's shoulder at his LED screen....

"They Hover Together" - Though this EVP was random it might be classified as a form of "Direct Communication". The voice wasn't talking to us directly, but it may have been talking about us, because of how all three of us were staying right together as we walked. Was this spirit frustrated, because he couldn't get any of us alone? It's hard to say.... Also, notice how the spirit stuttered on the "together" part. It sounds like, "t-t-Together".

"I Need To Get Up.... Tripped Over!" - This Direct Communication EVP was obtained at the mass grave monument, clear back on out October 1, 2004 investigation. Nothing else that was very compelling turned up on that night, so we never posted our reports. In this EVP, you will hear Aedryan talking about how on our other visits someone always says "Help Me!". Aedryan says, "If there is anyone here and you need help, tell us what you need help with and we'll see what we can do to help you.", etc. Immediately after that is said, you will hear a voice say, "I Need To Get Up.... Tripped Over!". If you listen closely you will actually hear a second voice saying, "I Hate You!" at the same time the other one is saying, "I Need To". Eeks!

Misceleneous Random EVP's

"Ball" - This guy seems to have some sort of accent....

"Oh!" - Yup... Seems to say, "Oh!"....

"A Ghostly noise" - We're not sure what this is, but we thought it was cool, so we included it. At the end it sounds like a man far off in the distance saying, "Help Us Through", but we're not sure what he's saying. This EVP has been amplified by 10db.

"Undiscerned" - We don't know what is being said here, but it's pretty freaky sounding. "Something" seems to be talking beneath Aedryan's voice. It sounds sorta like a growling, "Eww.... Yeah!", but it's nearly impossible to say for sure.

On this night there were a couple of occassions that it seemed the spirits were somehow using/manipulating our voices to communicate when we reviewed the playback. We have often wondered if spirits are capable of doing this, but we have not yet found a way to prove this theory. However, mediums "claim" that spirits channel through their voices and we have seen possession evidence, where a girl's voice will change to a man's voice, so we think the possibility is likely. In the "Universal EVP Classification System" coined by the SHGHRS, we call this "Morphing". Here are some examples:

"The Rest Of The Wind's Lifting Off You Right Now!" - We have no idea what this means, but it sounds A LOT like Tony's voice. Tony had been talking a moment before this EVP is heard, but there is obviously no reason why he would have said something so off the wall (even for Tony this would be wierd:). Also, notice how the tempo and pitch seems to speed up and down throughout the sentence. Very strange!

"The Ravine"

We had went and stood in an area on the outer perimeter of the cemetery on to occassions, which overlooks a heavily wooded ravine and we had strange voices show up in our playback both times. We are wondering if we should take a walk down into the ravine on our next visit. Maybe something happened down there that no one knows about....

"The Cigarette Break Incident" - This is an extremely wierd one. At one point we walked over onto one of the roads that go around the outer perimeter of the cemetery to take a cigarette break. Aedryan had just lit a cigarette and put his lighter away. Matt then asked Aedryan to borrow his lighter. We're not sure if spirits may have been manipulating all of our voices at once or what was going on. We have never seen anything like this before! This may be a combination of a "Morph" and "Chorale" classifications. What we can discern of the conversation goes as follows:

Tony: "Oh...." (his reply to something previously said)

......................Unknown Voices: "Take A Swing!"

..................................................."What!?".........
............................................................................."Battery Life!"
............................................................................."Fifty-nine!"
......................................................................................"Cops Out!?"....

................................................................................................................ ."You Got Ya Your Cigarette"
................................................................................................................................................"Hmm"
..........................................................................................................................................................."He's Dead!"....
Matt (kinda laughing): "Can i see your lighter, even though you just put it away?"

"Cops" - Again, this sounds like Tony's voice, but it is totally out of context and clearly makes no sense. There are a couple of wierd things about this EVP we should point out. Firstly, this EVP was captured in the same exact spot that "The Cigarette Break Incident" occured, in which "Cops Out!" was heard in part of that EVP. Prior to hearing this EVP in the playback Tony had said, "What's this?", in reference to a large heavily wooded ravine we were overlooking. Aedryan jokingly replied, "Oh, that's where we throw all of our new member's bodies after we kill them and steal their equipment!". Afterwards, all 3 of us just chuckled a little bit then we were silent. That is when this EVP was captured. It goes as follows:

Voice 1 - "Coming!"

Voice 2 (heard after the first camera beeps) - "It's coming down the mountain!" This part is very difficult to hear, but it sounds like a man screaming it from way off in the distance. We're not 100% sure this is what is said, but it's as close as we can get, because it's so faint.

Voice 3 (sounds like Tony) - "Cops!"

"Nut Uh!" - We had just heard an audible screaming type noise down in the ravine. In the recording you will hear Aedryan say, "What the hell's that noise?" then Matt says, "It sounds like raccoons maybe. Might?" That is followed by what sounds like, "Nut-Uh!", which showed up in our playback. Was a spirit disagreeing with Matt's theory?

"We'll Bring It Back" - This random EVP is very faint, but under enhancements two voices are clearly heard, saying the same thing in unison. This is what we classify as "Chorale".

"The Woman"

A woman's voice surfaced on at least three occassions on this night. She seemed to make the same type of moaning sound each time. Pretty wierd.... We think she was trying to get Tony's attention, because he likes his women cold and pale! >8>)

"Sexy Ghostly Moan" - Could be sighing or moaning. It's hard to tell....

"A Woman's Voice Again" - We're not sure what she is saying here, because it is very faint and the first syllable of whatever she is saying, falls on one of our footsteps. It seems to be the same woman'se voice though.

"Kiss Her" - This one goes as follows: Man's Voice 1: "Kiss Her!" Man's Voice 2: "Hello!" Woman's Moan: (moan)

An SHGHRS Funny Moment

"Get Out Of The Car!" - We will soon be adding an "SHGHRS Funny Moments And Bloopers" page to our site to share some off our funniest moments we've had out in the field with our visitors. We thought maybe people would get a kick out of this, so we included it here. As we got in the car to leave the cemetery after the investigation, Aedryan still had his recorder on....
