Central Premonitions Registry

Central Premonitions Registry

Founded by Robert and Nancy Nelson in New York, the Central Premonitions Registry registers and checks predictions from any part of the country. The registry invites anyone with claims to premonition to send them full details for the special filing system, so that their predictions may be verified. Premonitions are date-stamped and filed under such categories as natural disasters, wars and international relations, aircraft and ship disasters, and prominent personalitiesinjury or death. All these predictions are monitored and checked. The registry has already verified many remarkably accurate predictions, mostly from ordinary individuals, rather than professional psychics. Robert Nelson first became interested in the paranormal through the telekinetic ability of his identical twin brother, William, to move small objects by mental concentration.

The Central Premonitions Registry is the first private agency in the United States dedicated to the scientific evaluation of precognitive perceptions and their use as an early warning system for assassinations, plane crashes, floods, fires, and other catastrophes. Psychically gifted individuals are encouraged to participate in dream and telepathy studies at local dream laboratories. The registry also provides lectures to civic groups, schools, and colleges on precognition and related faculties. Address: P.O. Box 482, Times Square Sta., New York, NY 10036.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
