Bill Guggenheim and Judy Guggenheim created The ADC
Project in May, 1988 to conduct the first in-depth research of After-Death Communications.
In their initial research, they interviewed 2,000 people and collected more than 3,300
firsthand accounts from people who believe they have been contacted by a loved one who had
died. Their first book, Hello From Heaven!
was published in hardcover by Bantam Books in April, 1996.
