Accessing German Microfilm records #germany


Suzanne <freethinker65@...>
 

It has come to my attention, that some of GerSIG members are not aware of
microfilm records available >from the Mormon (LDS) Family History Centers
and indexed at the LDS website.

go to: www.familysearch.org

Click on: Family Search Centers at the top for a location near you in
the United States, Europe or country nearest your location.

Create a log in. (There are many records on this site, some of which
are free.) Click on catalog and type in place name to see what they
have available.

The Mormon (LDS) church has filmed these records. You will have a Family
History Center (Mormon genealogy center) in your area to which you will
have the microfilm sent. For the US films cost $8.50 per film to borrow
for 3 months.

The Family History Center will probably have a computer to scan and copy
machine for the records. However, I have found it necessary to take a
digital camera and take a photograph. Good Luck,
