Founded in 2010, Midwest Paranormal Files is dedicated to collecting and sharing knowledge of the paranormal.
Each investigation, free of charge, begins with background information gathering. Client interviews and site historical research is conducted. We use electronic and other equipment to conduct paranormal investigations for our clients. To the best of our abilities, every effort is made to find a physical explanation for any and all paranormal claims. Evidence review is a very careful process undertaken with collaboration from the entire team and any evidence is presented to the client in a timely manner. When necessary, and by invitation, return investigations can be scheduled. Client confidentiality, including location confidentiality, is of utmost importance. Some clients are willing to allow publication of their location, names, and likenesses on our website or other social media and/or in media presentations. We are extremely careful to use only that information which has been pre-approved by each client.
Community Outreach is an important part of Midwest Paranormal Files. When opportunities arise, we are proud to volunteer and participate. MPF has participated in Memorial 5k Run/Walks, regularly volunteers at a Native American Pow Wow, helps create and volunteers at a Halloween Haunted House fundraiser, volunteers at an annual golf tournament fundraiser, and creates and presents a changing yearly presentation for Paracon – a local annual paranormal convention held at Shooting Star Casino & Event Center in Mahnomen, Minnesota.
Midwest Paranormal Files gains no income from community outreach participation. Every cost incurred, including everything from equipment to travel expenses, is paid solely by each team member.
Midwest Paranormal Files has collected a small income from a single education class conducted through Detroit Lakes Community Education in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
The business of being in paranormal research is expensive, but Midwest Paranormal Files feels that the business of sharing time, effort, and knowledge is significantly more important.
