Bio: Hometown Akron OH, U.S. Army '66 - '69, lived in L.A. area from '81 to '07, currently in Charleston SC. From '92 to circa '97 developed a "JFK database" based on articles listed in attached 'Jfk.txt'.

My contribution to the database was software I developed to index the large body of text so words and topics could be looked up instantly. Nobody else has ever done a project like that, since the program supports multiple databases of different types and allows building new ones etc., and source code is included.

I can't vouch for all of the material in my collection, especially the Paul Hoch writing, but I included it because of names and places referenced. I have current reviews on Amazon for Mark Lane's Last Word and Fred Newcomb's Murder From Within. In 1992 and going forward I read about 35 books on the assassination. I once had a one-on-one debate with Kal Korff.

G'Day Dale,

How did the software work: a complete word search, tags, or something else?

Cheers and welcome,
