PROJECT 1947 is a world-wide effort to
document the origins of the modern UFO phenomenon. Research for the
project has yielded many early-era UFO reports via the FOIA, newspaper
articles and contemporary accounts. Some of the material gathered
by PROJECT 1947 is on display here.
PROJECT 1947 is always looking for volunteers to help continue the
search for new UFO documents and help process them for the published
PROJECT 1947 volumes.
To enable researchers from around the world to network, exchange
documents, and provide information about new FOIA releases of
UFO-related materials, PROJECT 1947 operates a computer mailing

PROJECT 1947 is an attempt to enhance the future of UFO research by
establishing a solid collection of official UFO documents, newspaper
articles and personal accounts from the beginning of the
modern UFO era.
The first volume of material collected by PROJECT 1947 has been
the UFO Research Coalition as
PROJECT 1947: A
Preliminary Report. An extensive collection of 1947 UFO
reports and newspaper accounts from the U.S.A. is supplemented by a
compilation of significant sightings from Scandinavia, France, Australia
and other countries.
By compiling a definitive history to show "how we
got here from there", the way to future UFO research projects and
FOIA requests will become much clearer. Persons interested in aiding
the project are always welcome.
