JFK Assassination Records

JFK Assassination Records - 2017 Additional Documents Release

The National Archives is releasing documents previously withheld in accordance with the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act.  The vast majority of the Collection (88%) has been open in full and released to the public since the late 1990s. The records at issue are documents previously identified as assassination records, but withheld in full or withheld in part. Learn more

These releases include FBI, CIA, and other agency documents (both formerly withheld in part and formerly withheld in full) identified by the Assassination Records Review Board as assassination records. The releases to date are as follows:

  • July 24, 2017: 3,810 documents (read press release)
  • October 26, 2017: 2,891 documents (read press release)
  • November 3, 2017: 676 documents (read press release)
  • November 9, 2017: 13,213 documents (read press release)
  • November 17, 2017: 10,744 documents (read press release)
  • December 15, 2017: 3,539 documents (read press release)
    Please Note: Within records released on December 15th, there are instances where multiple record identification numbers are associated with the same pdf. This is due to the fact that the files were scanned in batches.
