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:
