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.  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!
