Title: FBI Records
Post by: Robert J Schafish on October 21, 2009, 08:07:14 PM
the FBI Freedom of Information web site


lists 56 pages of documents under the name Earhart, Amelia.

However, the docs are not accessible via the FBI web site.

I did not find reference to the FBI on the TIGHAR web site.  Has anyone reviewed these docs?

Cheers, Bob Schafish

A nice piece of detective work on "Love to Mother" from the FOIA records:

Hmm, the Earhart records seem to have been open in 1999, according to a note in the old Forum.

Earhart is listed in the Electronic Reading Room, but nothing is linked to her name:

These folks seem to be offering the FBI files on a CD ROM:
