Regina Armstrong from Haunted History BC

Regina                                        Victoria

Located in British Colombia, Canada..Haunted History BC consists of Regina Armstrong and her sister Victoria .They started Haunted History BC to record and keep the history and the paranormal. With articles written in the Feminine Macabre and winning awards like the 2021 Heritage Commission Award Victoria and Regina are proving they are a force to be recon with in the paranormal. During the round table we got the immense pleasure of sitting down with Regina to go over attachments, best practices, and the overall question of bringing ethics back into paranormal investigating. Continue below to hear the behind the scenes interview with Haunted History BC and get insight on their most eye-opening experiences.

What has been the most eye opening experience investigating or researching the paranormal?

Our most eye opening experience has been how many people are actually willing to share their stories. We’ve had stories from places and people where hauntings weren’t previously widely known. So we appreciate being able to record not only the history of heritage places but to be able to preserve the ghost stories, hauntings, legends and folklore.

What is a good tip you would have for a new investigator?

Don’t worry about having lots of fancy equipment or having too much knowledge about how to investigate. Go to places that truly interest you. It doesn’t have to be the most popular haunted location. Seek out the lesser haunted and speak to the locals. You’ll get some fascinating information.

What has been the most intense situation you’ve encountered while investigating?

The most intense was a local museum. It houses an old train car and has a recreation of a military trench. So much unbelievable activity and equipment failures. It wasn’t scary necessarily but very draining and truly fascinating. We didn’t expect it. The activity began almost instantly at the train car.

What is one topic or aspect of paranormal investigating you would like to talk about?

Does recreating a historic site, time period or exhibit have the ability to provoke or attract paranormal energy to a place that wasn’t necessarily always haunted. Ex Titanic exhibit, our experience in the trenches at the local museum.

During investigations what is your favorite piece of equipment to use and why?

Digital recorder. Easy to get one and truly a revealing piece of equipment. Not much room for error when using these. A voice is a voice. There’s no mistaking it.

Do you think demons exist?

Definitely. We may use the term demons but also not everything is necessarily a demon. Believe there can be very negative energies in some places. Whether it’s an actual demon would take some investigating with someone who’s an expert on the subject.

Do you believe in child spirits?

Definitely. Children can linger as ghosts like any other individual. Maybe more so since they may not understand about death and know that they are dead.

What investigations or places do you hope to investigate in the future?

Would love to continue investigating our own back yard and local area. Also would love to venture into the interior of BC. Lots of Gold Rush Trail activity was there and some great ghost towns.

Members of your team and what they do?

Gina Armstrong—historian, author, photographer, researcher, interviewer, investigator, artist

Victoria Vancek—website design/maintenance, researcher, historian, photographer, avid note taker, interviewer, writer, investigator, artist

Bill Armstrong—navigator gets us to our locations, quality control and takes care of equipment
