Probe International was founded in 1990 by Sam and Jean Wright who were involved in LAPIS (Lancashire Anomalous Phenomena Investigation Society) based in the UK, and UFO Research Group Melbourne, situated in Australia. Jean Wright passed away in 2011, but left behind an impressive legacy of what she achieved over her 27 years of hosting UK and Europe's longest running UFO, Paranormal & Spiritual Annual Conferences.
Jean's main objective when hosting conferences and events was that information, truth and understanding should be made freely available to those wanting to learn more in the field of UFOlogy, the Paranormal and Spirituality. Her work is to this day still supported and delivered by her husband, Sam Wright and her son Paul who host two annual conferences each year which receives national, and international interest from researchers, authors and lecturers in the field, who use this platform to present their body of work. Jean's legacy lives on through these events, and still attracts a considerable following.
“It has been a blessing and honor to have the late Jean Wright as a mother, and a wonderful father, both of whose legacy I have every intention of building on in future events, and over the years to come. With over 30 years involvement with UFO and Paranormal groups and conferences, my parents worked tirelessly to bring inspirational, diverse and interesting USA speakers to the UK stage, such as: Jordan Maxwell, Charles Hall, Jo Anne Richards, Dolores Cannon, Andrew Strom (Philadelphia Experiment) to name but a few... This resulted in a birth of Probe International, UK/Europe’s longest running UFO/Paranormal/Spiritual conference.
