Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

דוד נ.א.
 

I need some scans from this microfilm:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/291948?availability=Family%20History%20Library

It is accessible from the LDS website, but only if accessed from one
of the LDS family history center.

Can anyone do this for me? Of course, pay as needed.
Thank you

Go to your library.  They should be able to request a loan of the film.  You would probably need to view it on the library 's microfilm reader on the library premises.

Where do you live?  In the US, there are LDS Family Center Libraries throughout the country and around the world too: https://www.familysearch.org/locations/

The closest LDS Family Center Libraries to Israel seem to be 3 in Cyprus
with limited hours.

You need to send them a message here: https://www.familysearch.org/help/    and tell them your problem and exactly what you need.  There are 2 in Cyprus.  Can you call them?

There are no more microfilms. The LDS is digitizing everything, and, if the information has been digitized, it should be viewable at a local LDS library. If it hasn't been digitized yet, you have to wait.

Hi,
The poster of this request for microfilm scans seems to be aware of his situation.  There are no Family History Centers in Israel. and even back when they had microfilms (they don't lend those anymore, all the data is online), they didn't send them to Israel.

They stopped lending films a couple of years ago, once they had digitized their entire collection.  (Yes, their entire collection.)  Many/most images can be viewed from their website (familysearch.org), but some, depending on the original agreements with the records holders , only allow access from computers actually at an FHC.

Possibly the author can be more specific in his request!  The "microfilm" mentioned is actually SEVEN rolls of Polish BDM records covering 5 decades.
Gmina żydowska, Międzyrzec Podlaski.  Given the timperiod,  they are likely in Russian.

There is an LDS library not far from where I live. I have never been there, but I’m happy to get the documents for you. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to do it until January.
If someone else is able to do it earlier, just let me know.

FamilySearch is indeed digitizing their microfilms, but as I understand it, it's an ongoing project which is not yet complete. However,  in this case, the films have been digitized (note the digital folder numbers), but must be viewed in a FamilySearch center.

I visit a Family History Center on a regular basis and would be happy to search for the documents if you can be more specific.  As noted previously, there are seven rolls of film, each roll containing from 400+ to 750+ images.  In my own research, I’ve scrolled through rolls of film without success due to language barriers and the lack of a logical ordering system. I’ll give it a try if you can prove more information. Send me an email.
