About Jessie

Studying Count St. Germain has been an ongoing passion of mine since 1998 when I first picked up Strange, But True by Tom Slemen.  I should thank both Tom Slemen and my mom, who bought me his book.  Strange, But True is a book with an assortment of weird historical mysteries such as the death of Bruce Lee and the man in the iron mask, but the first mystery in the book is “Count St. Germain: The Real Doctor Who?”.  Even as a high school junior in 1998, I felt there was more to the story than what was presented to me.  It began an obsession over this mystery man, for gaining any new knowledge I could.

For a long time my search was just a personal one, something I did in my spare time.  By 2011, I was contacting museums and other institutes regarding various primary sources.  In 2011, I was also pursuing a second bachelor’s degree in history (modern European) and ended up in a summer special topics class where I wrote a research paper called Count St. Germain’s Influence on 18th Century France.  I’d like to thank Dr. Carol Gold for being my history advisor and favored instructor.  It was that paper that made me want to write my own book on the count.

What I have found is that I could not have done all of my research without applied history, a hands-on approach to history.  For me, this means traveling to the more popular places the Count was known to spend time, interview local historians, and learning about the Count by making his surviving recipes and playing his music.

As the story goes, in the 18th century a man who most commonly went by the name Count St.Germain claimed to be immortal.  He wasn't just immortal though, he was known for his inventions, for being an alchemist, for his music and art, his political connections, his prophecies, and his progressive thoughts towards the future.  This larger-than-life character was known by the crown heads of Europe, many scientists of the century, and by many masons.  Who was this man?  Could he possibly be a real immortal?  I will explore the timeline of Count St.Germain, which ranges from 1695 to 1960, in a linear manner with my primary focus being on political, scientific, and cultural perspectives.

The biggest issue with doing research on the Count St.Germain is that no one has recovered a personal journal from him.  We are only left with two occult books, several pieces of music, and a few letters written to people.  The best way to go about this is to look to the people he knew for information about him.  There are small clues that can be followed by taking note of what seems to be mundane information; for example, there is the smallest mention that the count was the first to manufacture vellum in Austria.  Most people might skip over this fact because it doesn’t mention a person or a specific place, but it's clues like this that lead to research and answers.  I believe that through research in this manner, we will find that the count had an abnormally long life and, while his abilities may have been exaggerated, there is truth behind the wild claims.

I am NOT interested in the I AM Activity.  I'm interested in primary and secondary source materials in regards to a historical perspective.
