In our effort to educate the public about ghosts and what we do, our beliefs and theories, SJGR holds regular free lectures in local libraries. We also hold free lectures and fund raisers for various organizations. Our lectures consist of videos, photo displays, equipment displays and demos, audio samples, Q& A and much more.

Many of these events benefit local historical societies or community groups. We have conducted events at The Franklin Mint, Gabreil Daveis Tavern, The Olde Stone House Village, the Smithville Mansion Complex, General Wayne Inn, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Camden County Historical Society, Philadelphia Public Libraries, Cub Scouts, Wenonah Historical Society, Woodbury Kiwanis, Moorestown Rotary Club, Burlington Rotary Club, Rowan University, Stockton State College and many others.

Our seminars are larger events which are refund raisers for Historic Sites. They consist of many hands on activities including allowing you to enter a haunted building and use some of our equipment. You will also learn about EVP audio recordings, night vision technology, photography, get some equipment training, and lots more including activities for the kids.
