Transcription project, tape releases continue

The editors of the jonestown report continue to upload transcripts and summaries from the hundreds of audiotapes which the FBI recovered from Jonestown following the deaths in 1978. More than 60 are currently available on the “Alternative Considerations of Jonestown and Peoples Temple” website, which may be found here. In addition, the only known compilation of the FBI’s summaries of all 971 tapes may be found on this site.

The editors of the jonestown report also continue to receive releases of additional tapes every month from the FBI, and have almost 400 on hand. The websites indicates the tapes we have with the pound symbol (#) on the compilation of FBI summaries. We have filed requests for the balance of the collection, except for those which are blank or which contain only music, and will make their availability known as we receive them.
