The Black Vault Case File Database

The Black Vault Case File Database is a compilation of cases from around the world -- on a wide array of events.  Including UFO Sightings, paranormal experiences, ghost encounters, and much more!  This case file database was setup to have a very complex, yet easy to use, system of cases for research, reference and investigation.  The Black Vault has become well known for the UFO documentation that I have received directly from the government, so I wanted to offer a place for users to upload case files as well of their own experiences.  That idea has morphed into a huge database of cases from around the globe.

I run The Black Vault to offer a place for people to LEARN.  Whether that be to see an unknown case file, or to see something that is a known hoax, you are sure to have a lot of information at your disposal here for your research.

I've openned this section up where ANYONE can submit a sighting or case file. Whether you yourself experienced the event, or you are just someone who has investigated it, you can upload photos, videos, documents, supporting evidence, etc., and you can put it out there for the world to see.  You can submit it online, or you can email the information to me directly (with as much detail as possible) to reportacase@theblackvault.com

(Please note: This section is entirely different than the archive of more than 850,000+ classified government documents.  You can visit the FOIA Research Center if you are looking for the government document archive by clicking on "RESEARCH CENTER" in the above menu).

Add your sighting or case file.
