Documents

Document collections come from varied sources. A primary source of our materials is the Assassination Archives and Research Center. Other materials come from History Matters, JFK Lancer Productions & Publications, the National Archives, and other organizations and individuals.

The MFF currently has over 1,000,000 pages of scanned government records, most of them copies of records in the JFK Records Collection, which is maintained at National Archives II in College Park, Maryland. Also online are growing collections on the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, the Watergate scandal, and the post-Watergate investigations into abuses of the intelligence agencies.

For authenticity and best access to the original format, pages are presented as scanned images, not converted to text. Our custom viewing engine allows searching the text associated with each page image, and can even highlight search hits on the viewed pages.

See the Document Archive FAQ for frequently asked questions about the MFF Document Archive.
