While misinformation and disinformation are too common in the JFK story, the number of high-quality Web sites that provide useful information and perspectives about the assassination story is increasing.
Here are some of the best. Please not that just because I list a’ site does not mean I endorse any or all of the content of that site.
This list is regularly updated and reader recommendations are welcome.
- Mary Ferrell Foundation: The largest online repository of JFK assassination records from the FBI, CIA and other government agencies and from the five official investigations. The first stop for anyone doing JFK research online.
- JFKLancer: The online home of the largest network on independent JFK researchers who built and expanded the historical record of the assassination.
- Citizens for Truth About the Kennedy Assassination (CTKA): A hub for conspiracy-minded researchers that is strong on reviews of recent JFK books and obituaries of people involved in the JFK story.
- Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA). John Judge’s site focuses on current activities around the assassination of JFK, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Malcolm X.
- JFK Countercoup. Bill Kelly’s blog provides running commentary on new evidence related to the assassination with an emphasis on what can be done about it.
- The Grassy Knoll Witnesses: This Facebook page focuses on the witnesses who said that gunshots came from in front of the motorcade, testimony that any account of the assassination must explain.
- For beginners. 22 November 1963, a British Web site, provides a lucid and fair-minded overview of the JFK assassination and the many controversies about it.

- On the other hand. JFK Assassination Home Page: The best anti-conspiracy Web site, run by Marquette University professor John McAdams, defends the official story of a lone gunman while presenting a variety of evidence. If you disagree with his conclusions, these are the arguments you have to refute. (HANDLE WITH CARE)
