How exactly can I start downloading these files and reading them? Are the files themselves online for us to download and read without payng and ordering them from the National Archives?
Here’s how to access the new JFK files.
- Get online;
- Paste this URL in your browser: here: https://www.archives.gov/research/jfk/2017-release
- Select one of the nine “zipped” files containing the newly release material;
- Download the file;
- Start reading;
- Contact JFK Facts with interesting findings;
Note: the National Archives servers are frequently down, meaning many people are trying to do the same. Keep trying.
I recommend picking 1 of the 9 batches and just reading those documents. Please send any interesting material to firstname.lastname@example.org.
