The Federal Bureau of Investigations has recently announced the opening of The Vault.
The Vault is our new electronic reading room, containing more than 2,000 documents that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can read them in the comfort of your home or office.
Included here are more than 25 new files that have been released to the public but never added to this website; dozens of records previously posted on our site but removed as requests diminished; and files from our previous electronic reading room.
You can search the A-Z Index, or search by categories.
The list includes notables names from Al Capone to Joe DiMaggio and more. The site is free for use, and includes PDF documents that open on viewing screen on the website. The handwritten and typed documents can be difficult to read.
Although the site may prove more fun for Pop Culture trivia, check out their Supreme Court category for information on Thurgood Marshall, Hugo Black and Abe Fortas.
