Family Search Photoduplication Service #general


Mark Jacobson
 

Hi,
Family Search has had a Photoduplication service for many years, allowing
anyone to obtain a photocopy of any record they have on microfilm for $2
if you know the microfilm number, record title, name, date etc. of the record.
Now they have changed this to a free e-mail system. You can order up to 5
records a week for free through e-mail, they send you a link to an online
Family Search file storage site where you download a zip file with your
images at no charge. In your e-mail you have to include your name and address
along with the type of record, LDS film number (obtained >from their online
catalog https://familysearch.org/catalog-search ), name of person(s) on record,
title of record, record number and date of record. This works well for
New York City births, deaths and marriages indexed on
http://www.italiangen.org/ or any record where you know enough
information to find the right microfilm. It should also work for LDS
filmed records indexed by JRI-Poland.

This sounds like a good option for Israelis who do not have Family History
Center access. I did one order and it took about 2 weeks to get the
e-mail link to the copies. Some of the copies are a little blurry and dark,
but you can't beat the price and all the records are legible. See here
for more information including the e-mail address to send an order:
