The following sites are noted resources for materials on the JFK assassination,
the Kennedy Presidency, or related historical context.
Mary Ferrell Foundation (MFF) contains the largest electronic archive of JFK assassination documents, most of them donated by the AARC and History Matters, along with many other resources. History Matters founder Rex Bradford is senior analyst and archivist of the MFF.
Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC) was founded in
1984 by Bernard (Bud) Fensterwald Jr. and Jim Lesar, to provide a permanent
organization which would acquire, preserve and disseminate information
on political assassinations. It is the largest archive of its kind in
the world. History Matters is the developer of the AARC website, conceived
to bring the AARC's vast physical holdings into the electronic realm. History Matters founder Rex Bradford is Vice-President of the AARC.
www.jfklancer.com. JFK Lancer
Productions and Publications has a large-scale website on the Kennedy
assassination, with many articles, documents, and a full product catalog.
JFK Lancer sponsors a "November in Dallas" annual conference
on the assassination.
Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination contains a
very good collection of essays about the assassinations of John Kennedy,
Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. While CTKA's Probe
magazine is no longer being printed, the site contains both archived
and new articles from this great resource.
The National Archives and Records Administration is the primary
repository for documents released under the JFK Assassination Records
Collection Act, as well as pre-Act holdings such as the Warren Commission
files and physical evidence in the case. These materials are held in the
Archives II facility in College Park, Maryland. Some of the materials
on this website were photocopied at that facility and later scanned into
electronic form. The link given here is to the JFK Assassination portion
of NARA's website, which features the ability to search document record
summaries (but not search or view documents themselves online).
The Last Hurrah Bookshop has a vast collection of used books and
other materials on the JFK assassination, other political assassinations,
other conspiracies, and the Kennedy family. Proprietor Andy Winiarczyk
also sets up shop at the annual conferences.
John McAdam's Kennedy Assassination website is the most sophisticated
and comprehensive "anti-conspiracy" website devoted to the JFK
assassination, noting on its home page: "This web site is dedicated
to debunking the mass of misinformation and disinformation surrounding
the murder of JFK." While agreeing that not all allegations of conspiracy
are true, History Matters is hardly in agreement with the thrust and conclusions
of the McAdams site. But interested readers should see all sides of the
debate, and take great care before buying into anything they read on this
