Yes there are.  You need to go to a Family History Center - and take a large capacity flash drive.  When you find the records you want right click and save image as to your flash drive.  Do not be fooled by anyone there who says if you attach it to your "tree" that you can view from home - because I tried it with one record and it did not work when I got home.   What I did was make a rather long list of records in Excel from JRI Poland and then when I went to Salt Lake (in 2019) I found most of them with the help of a wonderful Polish lady.   The agreement that FS made with the Polish government is that the records can only be viewed in a FHL.  That said I could have gone to a local FHL - but chose not to, as my husband had professional meetings near Salt Lake and also wanted to research at the University.
