Bender Family Paranormal

​We are a Paranormal investigating team in Northern California.

* COVID-19 disclaimer:  Due to unprecedented times, with the current pandemic, we will not be able to visit in person. 

 We can offer phone, FaceTime, Zoom, and on-line support for more urgent matters.   As more people are quarantined, we are seeing a sharp increase in requests.  Remember, that in many cases, the same activity was there prior to this huge social isolation.

* March 1, 2021 - Thank you for all of the support during our COVID-19 illness.  We are recovering and very fatigued.  Luckily we had no immediate family deaths like so many others.  This pandemic has also aided to further our understanding of so much.  Life is a journey.

Stay tuned for our updates about on-line and interactive help.
