FBI Section 143 HH-9 Photographs

Section HH-9 — which is labelled in the Guyana Index as “History of Jim Jones” –– consists of 73 pages. The section comprises photocopies of 66 photographs recovered from Jonestown. The identifications – often determined through the captions on the back of the photos – appear below.

The listing below is complete for this section of the FBI’s FOIA release. The complete PDF for this section as released by the FBI is here.

The citation for these documents should open with the FBI’s official designation of these records, which is “RYMUR 89-4286.” Each individual photo in this section has a unique number. The photo on 69 – with its caption on page 68 – for example, is marked “HH-9-64”. The complete citation for that photo, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286-HH-9-64”.
