"Since LDS Microfilms no longer exist, except maybe in SLC, the film numbers need to be deleted or changed to something else by Jewishgen. They were indeed the source of the information, but they aren't usable now. You might search by the subject for the digital version on familysearch.org. It may be available at your home, but more likely at a LDS library."

Film numbers may still be used to search via the catalog. While FamilySearch has been digitizing old microfilm and assigning new digital numbers to those rolls, digitized collections and records may be located via either the original microfilm number or the digital number. As a matter of fact I just used an old film number this morning to locate a NYC marriage certificate.
