Collecting paranormal evidence / investigating a cemetery , looking for suggestion and answers/u/keasbey1

Backstory : (ctrl+f down to "dilemma" for TL:DR)

Been around spirits my whole life (house was Haunted growing up. Likely uneasy energy from previous owners + my parents old stuff which has been passed down through generations) , and have a very good bearing on whether something is friend , nuetral, or foe , and also know enough to not give permission to anything. Overall I'd say I'm 8/10 comfortable in paranormal situations (things moving on their own or unexplained noises don't really phase me).

I also have a deep admiration for history. About 4 or 5 months ago, my best friend and I stumbled on a historical cemetery. The majority of Graves are from the 1860-1880 time period, some being pioneers of the town, and most of the Graves being people who died in winter or in the nearby mine. The cemetery has a few "sections" though they are scattered about, with the oldest being near the mine. Sections easily distinguished by the direction of headstones and plot/no plot areas, as well as time period (surprisingly there are some Graves from the 2000's but very few. Like 3.)

About 2 months after initial discovery I took a date there late at night because she didn't believe it existed (no we didn't fuck in the graveyard). Well the second we walked in at night I could tell the place was Haunted. Eerily quiet , it definitely felt like we had been transported back in time. The whole place held its breath for us , and there were no bug or animal noises , despite hearing them in droves when in the parking lot.

When I got home , I looked up the cemetery and there are countless reports of paranormal activity.

Dilemma :

I'd like to do an investigation / try to gather some of my own evidence in springtime at this cemetery (it's brutally cold up there now).

My goal would be to go with my friend from the initial discovery , setup a nice camera (Canon DSLR) and leave it running on a tripod for most of the night. On top of that, walk around with my phone recording for an hour or so , positioned sort of like a body cam at chest-height. Then come back in the morning and review footage the next day.

I dont exactly have any intention of trying to antagonize , bait , or entice spirits from their rest. I think there is enough activity-apparent to avoid these tactics, especially being that it's my first delve into this.

Questions :

Does this sound like a reasonable start ?

What advice would you give to a beginner ?

What sort of goal should I have for a mostly historical and non-malevolent cemetery ?

How did you get started with investigating the paranormal?
