Photoduplication is a service provided by the Family History Library to provide copies of documents available in the library to patrons for their personal use and research.

The Family History Library now provides digital copies of items in the catalog. To request digital photocopies from the Family History Library you can now e-mail your request to Photoduplication@familysearch.org. If you can't seem to send an email at this address, please paste above email address into your email account and then send. 

If you go to familysearch.org, click on "Catalog" and enter the film or book number, you can check to see if it is digitized.  If so, you can print off your own copies. If the film or book has been digitized, we will not fill a request as you can do this on your own.  If you have access to a local LDS Family History Center, you can view the book from that library.  THIS SERVICE DOES NOT REPLACE ORDERING FILMS FROM YOUR LOCAL FAMILY HISTORY CENTER.  Below is a link to all family history locations throughout the world.  familysearch.org/locations . Please do not send links to pages!!  WE DO NOT DO RESEARCH!

You MUST include the Film or Fiche number, item number, Name of Individual you are researching, Title of record and name of parents, spouse, grantor, grantee, etc, Event type (Birth, Death or Marriage), Complete event date and place, Parish and volume or page number and registration or Certificate Number, and state or country of origin and any other information that will be helpful in locating your record.  You no longer need to use a form; however, if you would like to use the old form, you may email it to us. 

We must also have your complete name, address, telephone number and email address with each request.  Please let us know if you are new or a repeat patron and if your address, phone or email is new.

If you do not have access to a computer, you can either fax the request to 801-240-1584 or mail to: Photoduplication Unit, Family and Church History Department, 50 E North Temple St, Rm 599, Salt Lake City, Utah 84150-3400.

PLEASE LIMIT YOUR REQUEST TO FIVE (5) DOCUMENTS PER REQUEST PER MONTH!  

Photocopies of works which are currently protected by copyright are limited to 10 pages or 10% of the work, whichever is less. We don't make copies of an entire work.

You may request copies of select pages from the index of a record. After you receive the index, you can send a second order requesting the specific pages you need.

There is no charge for this service AS LONG AS WE E-MAIL THE COPIES to you.  If we need to mail them, there is a $2.00 fee per copy with a $4.00 minimum charge per order which can be paid by check or credit card.

If you have any questions, please call 801-240-3511 or 801-240-7843.
