Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting.

"Ghosts of the USS Midway"

Presented by: David Hanson

Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library

(365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910)

David Hanson runs the Midway museum's Curatorial Department, which handles all of the items donated to the museum. While his official title is "Collections Manager", he fills the role of what would be the ship's curator, and is the only paid staff member in the department.

David has held this position since December 2004 (not long after the museum opened to the public). In his spare time he is a military historian, and is the leader of the largest paranormal group in the county (the San Diego Ghost & Paranormal Group), which has over 900 members.

He will give a presentation on the "Ghosts of the USS Midway", in which he will discuss incidents of paranormal encounters aboard the USS Midway both during its active Navy career as well as in more recent years as a museum. These stories came from Midway staff members, visiting guests, and in some cases were personally experienced by himself while he led a professional investigative team around the ship during nine months of paranormal investigations. He considers the USS Midway to be one of the most paranormally active sites in San Diego, though it tries not to dwell upon it. Indeed, disclosures to the public of the Midway's hauntings are rare, and do not occur in any print or media.

The meeting starts promptly at Noon with announcements and introductions. Refreshments and fellowship will complete the program.

Please register soon if you plan to attend this meeting so that we may better plan for this event.

Attendance is free
