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:
