Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Family Search Photoduplication Service #galicia

Mark Jacobson


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 ), 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 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:
