You are correct, LDS refers to Family History Centers.  You can see if you might be able to access the records from home.

Go to (register for free)

Click on Search / Catalog

Search for:  click on Film/Fiche/Image Group Number (DGS)

In the drop down box put in the film number, 642919


Click on  Items 3-5: Anyakönyvek, 1851-1895


Izraelita Hitközseg, Fehérgyarmat

Click on the camera icon and you can see the pages of microfilm. 

Click on that and you see the details, that it is a milcrofilm.  Scroll down and…It is viewable online!  Yaaa!

Click on the camera icon and you can see the pages of microfilm. 

In the upper left corner you will see several tools.  The icon of 9 boxes means to see lots of little scans that are too small to read.  Click on that and it will take you to see one image, which you can magnify with the + icon. 

The icon of an empty box with only the corners marked takes you to a single image, which you can enlarge or reduce with + - tools.  You can also double click on an image to enlarge it.


To capture an image you can print it, or (preferably) download it.  Save it as a jpg image to the appropriate file on your computer.


You are fortunate.  My Polish records are all Restricted, meaning that per FamilySearch’s agreement with the Polish record keepers, the films may only be viewed at a Family History center.  Those films are marked with the icon of a key above the camera icon.  Downloading them is trickier too.
