It looks like the server is down again, and has been for a few days. Mcadams.posc.mu.edu still resolves to an IP address, which suggests that the server has not been decommissioned.

If the McAdams site ever gets up and running again I recommend saving anything that you find useful like the Testimony page which is great for CT's and LNers alike.
The program I used to save the Testimony page and all its links was "HTTrack Website Copier" which took a minute or two and  ended up being about 120 meg and is identical to the original.

Dr. Mcadams presciently archived with live links, "the whole shootin' match," if you'll pardon the pun, right here.

Witness testimony :

http://web.archive.org/web/20190926234556/https://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/russ/testimony/

This other backup, in optical images with live links, is more "hit or mis"/

And the witness testimony/affidavits is/are here:  https://www.jfk-assassination.net/russ/wit.htm

I don't see the above linked anywhere at the home page. I think most people want that source above anything else.

Unfortunately, that is not the complete site.
But the other cited link is good:
https://www.jfk-assassination.net/home.htm
Some of the secondary links on linked pages do not work, which may have been a pre-existing problem. But it seems to be complete from what I have tested.

This is from Nick Nalli:

============================================================
As some of you may know, the McAdams Kennedy Assassination website, a mainstay for JFK assassination buffs and those otherwise interested in the history of the case, was recently taken down from the Marquette University web server (probably as a routine university policy and not a Conspiracy), some 5 months after the founder and webmaster, Prof. John McAdams, passed away this past April.
On behalf of the McAdams family, I am happy to relay to you that the website is back online at the new URL:

http://www.jfk-assassination.net

Please be sure to update your bookmarks. Please note that they are still in the process of ironing out all the kinks (e.g., there are still some broken links, etc.).
Thanks goes out to Johnís wife Lynda, and his children John, Laura, and Amy, for being proactive in restoring the website to its rightful place as an invaluable, academic internet resource.
============================================================

So it seems that McAdams site has been moved to a new home.
