FBI Section 139 GG-1 – GG-3
Russia, Cuba, Other Countries

The FBI combined three folders of Temple documents – GG-1 through GG-3 – into a single section totalling 65 pages and labelled in the Guyana Index as “Russia, Cuba, Other Countries.”

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. Several pages from this section comprise notes of meetings between Temple members and officials of the Soviet Embassy, which have been organized into a separate page.

The citation for these documents should open with the FBI’s official designation of these records, which is “RYMUR 89-4286.” Each individual page in these records has a unique number. Page 11 of this document, for example, is marked “GG-1-C1”. The complete citation for that page, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286-GG-1-C1”.

It should be noted that the FBI release includes additional documents concerning the Temple’s relationship with the Soviet Union at Section 88 G-1 and with other Communist countries at Section 88 G-2.
