ID Photos File to be Posted Online

by Don Beck

03-beck4A file of the ID photos for those who died in Guyana has been added to the Jonestown website. The names listed on the photos are the same as those listed on the stones at Evergreen Cemetery. This format – a collection of the ID photos – was developed as a resource for quick and easy access to all the photos in one place, whether you are looking for a single person or a general impression of the population of Jonestown.

We are still missing photographs for about 50 people, but work continues on gathering them. If you have any photos at all of those not pictured – including family snapshots – please share them with us so we can assemble a complete set.

This file is also available on the Who Died list.

The file is a .pdf file, 18MB. Many browsers have the ability to display .pdf files they download. For those that do not display .pdf files, use your browser to download and save the file; then use Adobe Reader to read and print it. Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free at:
