My understanding of the classification is as follows:

1st Generation: These are researchers who began researching the assassination right at the beginning or very close to it. This would include David Lifton, Harold Weissberg, Robert Groden, Mark Lane, Jim Marrs.

2nd Generation: These are researchers that arrived on the scene after the new wave of publicity that surrounded the JFK assassination with the new 1978 HSCA investigation. This would include the likes of Vince Palamara.

3rd Generation: These are researchers that arrived on the scene after the new wave of publicity that surrounded the JFK assassination with the release of the 1991 JFK movie and subsequent release of new files via the ARRB. This would include people like David Mantik and Jim DiEugenio (though maybe DiEugenio is 2nd generation i'm not sure).

Is this a correct interpretation of the classification of 1st, 2nd, 3rd generation JFK researchers?

Has the 4th generation started yet?

Are you sure there will there be a 4th generation? I think public interest is very much on the wane. When public interest dries up book sales dry up with it. Let's face it, that's the real reason the JFK assanation has lasted three generations.

I doubt people make any money with books. Unless maybe Bill O'Reillys "Killing Kennedy" which sold a million copies. He probably made a million dollars or so which is odd because he's not one of the main researchers, that appears at conferences and such, in the case.

4th Generation: These are researchers whose access to the internet and digital technology has equipped them with powerful tools unavailable to previous generations. This generation has revealed the LN theory to be nothing more than an analogue hoax that cannot withstand the scrutiny of the digital age.

I think a big difference between the first and third generations of researchers is that the first generation was dominated by ultra-liberals, some of whom seemed to be pro-communist. The third generation of researchers includes a sizable number of researchers who are not ultra-liberal or even liberal. Some are centrists. Some are libertarians. And a few are traditional conservatives.
