JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: FamilySearch Photoduplication time for email request? #general

Mark Jacobson

FamilySearch Photoduplication is overwhelmed with requests. They are
taking at least a month to fill a request for copies (I have been waiting
about 4 weeks for my most recent request). They do not directly send you
the images. They send you a temporary link to an online storage file
where you can download the jpg images to your computer as a zip file. The
images only are there for two weeks, so download them as soon as you can.

Thanks for the new info on frequency of requests. Can one generalize as
to about how long such a (valid) request takes to complete? Does the result
arrive as an (attached) email scan?

I visited the site today, however, and that seems to have changed. The
posted limit is now 5 items per month.
