October 18, 2013, I found out that I had been mentioned
in a new book entitled SPOOKY SUDBURY which was recently
published by Dundurn Publishing, Toronto. Needless to
say, I went to COLES in the New Sudbury Center and purchased
my own copy. My deepest thanks go out to both authors,
Mark Leslie and Jenny Jelen for also mentioning my website,
NOUFORS (Northern Ontario UFO Research and Study).
page 131, Jenny writes:
skeptics, however, are far out-numbered by the ufologists
(people who are so interested in the subject that they
have created books, websites, and groups dedicated to
the study and collection of reported cases).
such resource, championed by Michel Deschamps, called
the Northern Ontario UFO Research & Study (NOUFORS)
is dedicated to eyewitnesses, both past and present,
and contains a plethora of documented cases of UFO sightings.

is a veritable hotspot for otherworldly visitors.

here.' Deschamps says that it is the consensus of Internet
watchers that alien interest in Sudbury is both long-standing
and based on our mining history. Perhaps there is something
in the high frequency of nickel deposits in our region
that is attracting these visitors."

Ontario UFO Research & Study (NOUFORS)
2007, Michel M. Deschamps has worked on creating a website
originally based on the research performed using the
newspaper archive at Laurentian University. NOUFORS
has expanded to include a wide range of ufological information
gathered from international sources - everything from
Sightings made by Astronauts and Police officers to
Physical Trace Evidence left behind by landed objects
of unknown origin. Deschamps presents the hard facts
to the best of his abilities, and encourages the reader
to look at the material with an open mind, and perhaps
learn something new and fascinating, along the way.
continues to inform the public about UFOs and Flying
Saucers by lecturing on the subject and articles he
has written which have appeared in The Canadian Ufologist,
a Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Ontario newsletter. His
expertise lies in researching Northern Ontario newspaper
archives for UFO reports and UFO-related information.
Apart from those retrieved from the Sudbury Star, both
he and his colleague Todd Fraser have located hundreds
of news clippings within the pages of the Sault Star,
the Timmins Daily Press, the Kirkland Lake Northern
Daily News, and the North Bay Nugget.
July 1974, Deschamps has had just under thirty separate
UFO sightings, including two captured on video and he
has appeared on numerous radio and television programs
including Midday Q, In The North, MCYV Today, Volt (TFO)
and The Camilla Scott Show (CTV).

Wednesday, November 2, 2011, I did a presentation at Thorneloe
University for the third year in a row, and it
went very well. In my presentation, I included some new cases
and other UFO-related information. The students had execellent
questions for me and I tried to answer them as best as I could.
I'm looking forward to doing this again, next November.

Roswell I-Beam designed by the Marcel family - LIMITED
replica and Jesse Marcel Jr.
Wednesday, February 10, 2010, I received an interesting
parcel in the mail. I recently purchased a replica of
the I-beam that Jesse Marcel Jr. remembers handling when
he was eleven years old, way back in 1947. In early July
of that year, his father, Jesse Marcel Sr., Intelligence
officer of the 509th Bomb Wing at the Roswell, New Mexico
air base, brought in some pieces of wreckage purported
to be the remnants of a crashed flying saucer found on
a ranch, seventy-five miles northwest of Roswell.
one side of the I-beam are purple-colored symbols representing
"something that means something", as Jesse Marcel
Sr. stated during a 1978 television interview.
